Looking for a fennel substitute OR what to do with a lot of smoked salmon
Hi, I was given a large smoked salmon. I had been saving it for a party but not party materialized. It is close to its expiry...so I need some ideas!
I found this recipe (see end of post) for a smoked salmon/potato/fennel hash that sounded great. The only problem is that I hate fennel. What would be a good substitute for the fennel.
And if you have any good ideas for using salmon in a recipe (aside from quiche/eggs), I would love to hear them.
I am eager to make a smoked salmon pizza. Bake or grill a fairly thin crust pizza, then top with sour cream/dill, salmon, thinly sliced red onions, and capers. Maybe quartered or sliced HB egg. There are a bunch of recipes out there on the web if you want more specifics.
Best thing: make a smoked salmon dip....
or... serve or a pizza or foccacia with smoked salmon, artichoke and/or asparagus, and chevre, gruyere, and/or comte cheese...
The above are incredible pairings with chardonnay or champagne... amaze your friends.
I love this lentil dish, without the bacon, served at room temperature with chunks of smoked salmon, assuming that you have non-sliced salmon.
The amount of mustard and vinegar is bracing, so you do have to love those flavors. I omit the fennel and just add more of the other vegetables.
