I don’t eat salmon very often, I think I ate it too much during my younger years. But when I do, I love using hot smoked salmon! Im usually not a fan of smoked flavors, but hot smoked salmon is the exception. I love the flaky texture, being both tender and creamy at the same time with the mild smokey flavor. It’s amazing to add to a salad and combine it with fresh and crispy vegetables. The crunchy, yet quite mild red onion and the thinly sliced fennel that has a hint of anise flavor to it makes a wonderful combination with the hot smoked salmon. I also added cooked potatoes to make it more filling and also because it pairs well with the hot smoked salmon and fish roe for the texture and salty addition. I love just sprinkling this salad with some fresh lemon juice, but you can also serve it with a nice dill or herb dressing, balsamic vinegar or a creamy avocado dressing.
A few tips:
- Use good quality salmon, since it’s the star of the dish.
- You can with benefit cook the potatoes in advance and let them cool until ready to serve.
- I like to add small mouth sized pieces of salmon to the salad and not adding one big piece. I love how the salmon combines with the other ingredients when its thorn into smaller pieces.
- I love slicing the fennel using a mandolin to make sure I get really think slices.
