What Goes Well With Smoked Salmon?

Smoked salmon is a versatile ingredient that can be enjoyed with a variety of different dishes. For example, pasta with a simple garlic-infused olive oil and roasted red peppers. Simple fresh flavors go well with smoked salmon, as do simple fresh salads like roquette, cherry tomatoes, and fresh asparagus.

A popular combination is smoked salmon eggs benedict, the rich hollandaise sauce complements the smoked salmon. Pasta pairs well with a wide variety of pasta dishes. We love smoked salmon with a simple infusion of fresh garlic and extra virgin olive oil.

What Is The Difference Between Hot Smoked And Cold Smoked Salmon

A popular question in the culinary world is: “What’s the difference between hot smoked and cold smoked salmon?” Simple answer: Hot smoking hot and fast, cold smoking low and slow.

There are a couple of differences, but one of the most important is how hot the smoke is when smoking salmon and the other is the length of time the salmon is in the smoke.

Hot Smoking

Hot smoking salmon is just that smoking with hot smoke, this process smokes and cooks the salmon and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 12 hours. This will produce dark orange flesh with an orang light brown outer surface. Hot smoking gives an increased smoky buttery flavor.

Cold Smoking

Cold smoking salmon is using cold smoke to smoke the salmon and can take as little as two days or as long as one week to smoke. Cold smoking will impart a subtle smoky aromatic flavor that is rich and refined. The flesh and outer surface will be a bright orange which is delicate and tender.

My Professional Recommendations

Seasoning Food

Maldon Sea Salt Flakes
  • As a chef the most underrated ingredient in the kitchen is salt. When my recipes call for salt and pepper I use a variety of different salts and freshly ground black pepper.

Many chefs, including myself, prefer sea salt like Maldon salt flakes or Himalayan pink salt. Both can be used for cooking and finishing. They have a refined flavor that brings out the natural taste of food.
