Too much smoked fish

I am almost embarassed to say I got a bit carried away this morning. After having a wonderful breakfast at Brent's early this morning I thought I would take some fish home for the rest of the weekend. The guy at the counter asked me what I wanted and I DID NOT THINK. I just said "oh just give me a pound of lox and cod". I guess it really hit me when paying my bill and the total of the fish and breakfast came to $101.23. OY VEY. What do I do now?

      ROFL! I just made another bagel with cream cheese, lox, tomato and a slug of the cod on the side.

    2. You can freeze it. Texture will suffer a bit, but will mostly be intact.

      It'll last at least a week in the fridge, however.

      1. bagels every day!!!! i'm jealous :) enjoy!

        1. you can make pasta with the lox, we do it often. like, throw it into the creamy vodka sauce, add some peas and let it all simmer for a bit. it's a replication of my favorite pasta dish, forgetting the name...

            By creamy vodka sauce do you mean a tomato-based vodka sauce or something else? I overbought smoked salmon at Costco and am looking for dinner ideas to use it up.

              I make a smoked salmon pasta that does not involve tomatoes. I use a cup of cream, and a cup of clam juice, simmered together until it thickens enough to coat a spoon. Add about a teaspoon of lemon juice and some fresh dill and salt and pepper to taste. Off-heat, stir in about four ounces of smoked salmon cut into thin strips. Toss with the pasta of your choice. I like it with angel hair pasta.
