Once only available in gourmet delis or markets, smoked salmon is now easy to find. And this creative cookbook highlights its versatility with great ideas for soups, salads, and main courses. For starters, pass hors d'oeuvres of Smoked Salmon Maki rolls spiked with wasabi cream cheese to impress your guests. Enjoy a dressed-up version of potato salad using smoked salmon and caramelized shallots. Or make smoked salmon the main event by serving it grilled, on a bed of French lentils, and drizzled with bacon-horseradish sauce.
Hansen also offers easy instructions for smoking salmon at home and tips for roasting garlic, toasting nuts, and making beautiful salmon roses for garnishes.
