No, I don't really like it. It seems very salty to me. I will have it if it is mixed in with other things to mask the taste. On new years eve, I had it mixed in with other things in a pasta salad for entree ( set menu), but that salty taste was still there. It was okay, but it was not something I would have chosen to eat. At least the rest of the meal was delicious !
Love, love, love it. I have it with avacardo, mayonnaise and very thinly sliced Spanish onion. The waitress at our local club knows my order and several people sitting near me now order the same sandwich. As for being able to tell the difference between an expensive brand and a cheaper one, tbere is really very little differdnce. Just a matter of preference. And yex, I eat it several times per week and as I'm now on my European River Cruise, I have a double serving at breakfast with my eggs.
I do not like it at all.I LOVE it! ADORE it!!!! I remember,one year when in my teens and asked if there was any birthday gift I would like from my family, the only thing I said was 'Smoked Salmon,please' Not for the birthday MEAL, but as a gift that I would not have to share with anyone!!!!! It was,and still is,so pricey, that even a tiny amount,back in the 70's,was something to budget for! I certainly did not expect to get my requested gift,so you can imagine the delight and surprise which I felt when I opened my family's present to find that treasured portion of Smoked Salmon, all for ME!!!! It is these sorts of memories which I get immense joy from when they are brought to mind,so thank you Finy,for this wonderful question!
Yes indeed!! It WAS extremely special to receive such a treat for my birthday gift!! These memories make getting older so enjoyable. I had a really lovely childhood,though I was not from a wealthy family at all.We were always happy though and enjoyed doing things together!
Yes I love smoked salmon. I buy it when we have visitors and serve it several different ways. I like it for breakfast served with poached free range eggs, toasted turkish bread, spinach leaves and tomatoes.
Smoked salmon sandwiches are usually well received when finger food is required. I slice the loaf of ciabatta or turkish bread in two through the centre lengthwise, spread with cream cheese, slices of smoked salmon and fresh dill and capers. Put the top on and apply either a little weight , or wrap and refrigerate to help stop sandwich falling apart when eaten . Finally cut the roll into 5cm slices to serve.
YES I love the stuff, but because of the price of it, I only buy a packet of it, about once a year, but when we go cruising, I have it every morning for breakfast with cream cheese, lemon, & capers. I used to also eat it with slices of red onion & tomato & 1/2 a bagal, but I don't like it anymore with those 3 last items I've just mentioned!
Smoked salmon is delicious! Love it! I like it in pasta, in Caesar salad instead of chicken, with eggs on toast, and in wraps. I do have to be careful how much I eat in one sitting though as too much can make me nauseous.
Yes i love it. Mine is affordable!!! Buy it when its on the last sell by date!!! I keep some in the fridge for 2-3 days and the rest gets broken down into small portions and frozen. Whilst not as good as fresh its ok when used in hot meals etc. My favourite breakfast is buttery scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on a toasted baggel with cream cheese on and a glass of white bubbly.
For cocktail bits I use it on scotch pancakes cut into thirds smothered with fromage fraise and smoked salmon on top, grind of black pepper and lemon juice squeeze mmm. The scotch pancakes do not dry up like bread does in Australian summers.
