Smoked Salmon Salad

Smoked Salmon Salad created by twissis

I bought some smoked salmon, not the lox style cured fish, but a section of the fish that had been smoked as one piece. After eating some of it plain, I decided to turn the rest of it into salmon salad and it was wonderful. Since salmon is so good for you, this might become a staple in my diet. NOTE: Be sure to use salmon that has been cooked with heat in the oven, on a grill or skillet...then cooled before flaking.

    Made for the “Think Pink” event @ FF&F. This otherwise easy-fix recipe was a bit confusing for me, mainly because I was never quite sure I was using the right type of smoked salmon after reading your intro. Googling “types of smoked salmon” revealed there are 5-6 main types & I suspect the smoked salmon you describe is what they called “Hot Smoked Salmon” because it flakes easily. I used a combo of 2 types of smoked salmon, but neither flaked well. So I had to slice & chop in order to mix it w/the other ingredients. The end result was a thick spread that I applied to brown bread & crackers since no serving directions were suggested. I also topped it w/thin-sliced red onion & capers as we do here in Iceland. It was tasty, but I could not help feeling that I’d gone to a fair amt of trouble & not improved on the simple method of putting sliced smoked salmon atop cream cheese w/a garnish of choice. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. It made for a tasty snack & was also educational about 1 of our favorite foods.
