      This is different to sushi salmon, which is left uncured and served raw (only preparation is flash freezing)
      Smoked salmon goes really well with bread and cream cheese. It's often served with lemon. Dill is also associated with smoked salmon.

    Everytime I watch a program on salmon fishing I can't help to think how can it be sustainable? I will say farm raised doesn't taste no where near as good as wild salmon.

      +Trap Star1 Of course I did. Don't also forget that most salmons now come from filthy farms, like the Norwegian salmon, the most toxic of the family. So, I hope you are enjoying the toxins.

    I was going to say something really gangster, but I started thinking about a freshly sliced bagel that has a slight crunch, topped with grass fed goat cream cheese that has a hint of sweet Meyer lemon, with a nice maple smoked aged salmon, with the sweetest capers from a small village in the hills of Italy, paired with a lightly carbonated water agua fresca with mint from the rolling hills of Morocco.
