Smoked Salmon

I bought a lot more than usual (1 lb), and want to see if you have any ideas on what to do with it, besides eating it with caviar, on a bagel w/ cream cheese, etc.. Don't get me wrong, both are wonderful, but I'm looking for something different. I'm the only one in my house that eats it, so i want something that freezes well and/or can be re-used for another meal.

    1. Just drape a couple of slices over some scrambled eggs...maybe throw on some chopped chives or parsley... let the heat from the eggs warm it slightly. Mmm good.

        Agreed. I thought it was waste of good salmon...and then I tried it.

            I just ate this at a restaurant last night.. smoked salmon, cream cheese, parsley, red onions, spinach -- in scrambled eggs. the word to describe it as described so much below: perfect.

      2. This is from the Barefoot Contessa, and is wonderful.

        SALMON, DILL AND CREAM CHEESE SPREAD BAREFOOT CONTESSA

        8 ounces cream cheese

        1 teaspoon prepared white horseradish

        4 ounces smoked salmon

        1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

        Thinly sliced baguette rounds
        1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
        ½ cup sour cream
        ½ teaspoon kosher salt
        ¼ teaspoon black pepper

        Cream the cheese in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until just smooth.
        Add the sour cream, lemon juice, dill, horseradish, salt, pepper, and mix.
        Add the smoked salmon and mix well.
        Chill and serve with baguette rounds or crackers or crudités.
        If you can find it, I prefer Norwegian Salmon, as it is drier and less salty then other smoked salmon.

        1. I love smoked salmon pasta dishes! just google some recipes, I'm sure you can find a bunch.
