What are your favorite recipes for smoked salmon?

I am giving up eggs for a while to see how I feel. Since I would usually pair eggs with smoked salmon (from Trader Joe's), what other tasty meals can I make with smoked salmon? Thanks!

Gruyere...or raclette...I like them grilled over things, but chunked into salad sounds good too.

At Hannaford market sometimes they sell the smoked salmon "scraps" for something like 10 bucks a pound in the fish fridge. They are just as good and I just eat it straight. YUM.

I wish I could eat cucumber :( But it repeats on me really badly, it's so odd! I'm not sure if it's the water content or if there's an enzyme/component in cucumbers that I'm sensitive to. I love them but have to avoid them!

I just eat it straight up. If it were cheaper, I'd eat it every day.

If you do dairy, I like to wrap smoked salmon around a chunk of cream cheese & sliced onion. Smoked salmon would be great on a salad too.

Last night I put together a salad with smoked salmon (local Hoodsport, WA) sour cream, brined cucumber slices (salted, rinsed briefly, patted dry, apple cider vinegar bath, shake off after about fifteen or twenty minutes and chop) scallions chopped, dill weed, celery seed, and garden lettuce. We licked the bowl. To fancy it up, add olives, cherry tomatoes, lumps of brie or Gruyere cheese and you have a fabulous dish.

There's a Gruyere to look for: Cave Aged Swiss Gruyere .. it's too good to describe, fascinating in texture and perfect for French onion Soup. Skip the bread for paleo. Try a sprig of parsley, or even a few sauteed asparagus tips.

chopped up, with chopped bacon, chives, mixed into cream cheese is very good and makes a good "scoopable" for celery sticks.

However, I don't eat cream cheese very much (lactose problems) so I usually end up making bacon+green onion wraps where the salmon is the wrap.

Given that the OP stated she was giving up eggs, I'm not sure that your main suggestion is going to be much use to her @Eugenia!

My answer would be: why cook with it at all?! Smoked salmon is delicious, I could eat it all day - just pair it with some fresh veg and tuck in!

Add it to scrambled eggs. In fact, I cooked exactly that this morning: scrambled eggs as here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl-CWjwhwNQ&hd=1 and then I added bits of smoked salmon and chopped green onions (the green part). My husband loved it and he said that this was the best breakfast he ever had.

Another thing you can do is steam asparagus, and then roll a slice of smoked salmon around two asparagus stalks.

Makes a DIVINE soup with Jerusalem Artichokes (sunchokes). Take about 1 lb artichokes, peeled and chopped, 1 onion chopped, place in sauce pan and just cover with chicken stock. Simmer until soft, then stir in 2 to 3 ounces smoked salmon (offcuts are cheap and appropriate here), heat and then puree the soup with a stick blender. Stir in about a teaspoon of dried dill, black pepper to taste and a big swirl of double (heavy) cream. One of my favourite things ever...

ceviche!! i'm obsessed lol

generous amount of fresh lime juice, fresh chopped coriander, chopped onions, chili pepper, chopped green and red peppers, salt, freshly ground black pepper

cut salmon into strips, combine all ingredients in a glass bowl, let it sit for at least 15 minutes (usually it's 1-3 hours or even overnight when using raw salmon/fish/seafood, but since smoked salmon is safe and ready-to-eat you only want the flavors to combine, however you can let sit > 15 mins)

eat with avocado and/or endive leavs

Yummm!!

Just put together a lettuce cup with tomato, avocado, chives, bacon crumbles, goat cheese crumbles and smoked salmon. I drizzled a little dressing I made with dijon, lemon, evoo and scallions. Success. Will do again

Smoked salmon and avocado slices, on dehydrated seed crackers if you're into that. Or, make a guacamole and mix the salmon into that.

I just smoked up another batch of filets. I crumble them into stir frys with onions, garlic, butter and capers. I also eat them over red cabbage and onion salad.

I smoke the salmon over wood and the flavor comes out very strong. I smoke it topped with bacon strips for seasoning and to add some fat.

You don't need much of a recipe for smoked salmon. I had it with eggs this morning but it also pairs nicely with any combination of tomato, cucumber, onion.

And I second the cream cheese recommendation but I have it more often with whole-fat greek yogurt.

Another way to make smoked salmon more interesting/tasty is to buy it directly from a quality fish smoking place. Or salt your own like my mom used to do. There's a notable quality/taste difference. A place right near my house offers a different variety of salmons they smoke with different seasonings - dill is a natural match if you're into that flavor.

Also check out other smoked fishes like herring, sturgeon, whitefish.
