recipes using smoked salmon

I got a beautiful filet of smoked salmon as a gift. It's huge and I don't want to waste it. Don't have a clue what to do with it beyond the obvious salmon and cream cheese topping. Help!

  1. I often times cook eggs or egg white and add smoked salmon. You can also make a smoked salmon spread for veggies and crackers. Just mix with cream cheese and dill and spread away.

    1. Scalloped potatoes with small chunks of salmon muixed in.

      1. Here's a site with a lot of good recipes

        I recently made a sandwich of smoked salmon mixed with mayo and dill, topped with a slice of bacon ... it was great.

        Today I tried the spring salmon soup from the first link ... basically chicken stock, sherry, asparagus, mushrooms and salmon. It is like a miso soup. I didn't use soy sauce in it but it tasted like it for some reason.

        I like mixing a little smoked salmon into scrambled eggs too. This recipe from the above link sounds good too ...

        Smoked Salmon, Avocado and Egg Crepe Roulade Recipe

        1. I love this recipe for Smoked Salmon Spread. I always add finely chopped red onion, too.

          1. a couple of old standbys;
            1. Lox & onions & eggs;(serves 2)
            1/4 lb smoked salmon cut or torn into small tidbits
            1 medium onion chopped
            6 eggs
            dash worcestershire
            dash lousiana pepper sauce
            1 Tbsp. chopped parsley

            saute the onions in 2 Tbsp of unsalted butter over med-high heat until starting to brown around the edges. beat the eggs in a bowl then add the worcestershire and pepper sauce along with a Tbsp of water. add the eggs to the skillet and scramble gently, lifting the edges and allowing the uncooked egg to run under. When mostly set, stir in the salom tidbits and the parsley and cook until just starting to dry. grind a few turns of fresh black pepper and a light shake of sea salt. serve with toasted bagels.
            2. Smoked Salmon Pasta;Serves 4
            1 lb. bow tie pasta
            4 oz. white mushrooms sliced
            4 oz. smoked salmon shredded
            3/4 c. heavy cream
            1/4 c. finely chopped green onions
            2 tbsp. cognac or brandy
            1/4 c. grated parmesean or romano or a mixture
            1 tbsp unsalted butter salt and fresh black pepper
            in a large saute pan or skillet, sweat the onions until translucent. Boil the pasta to al dente. drain and hold. add the mushrooms and saute until soft and just beginning to brown at the edges. add the cream and cook over medium heat til it starts to bubble. add the pasta and toss. add the salmon and the cognac sook for about 2 mnutes and add the cognac and cheese. Continue to toss for another 2 minutes then serve after grinding some pepper and sea salt.
            these may help you use some of that salmon so it won't go to waste, which would be a shame.
