I ordered and received a two Lb. smoked salmon filet. Years ago we lived in the Seattle area. Now new Mexico. Our family of five will be together during Christmas. Please tell me your favorite condiments, etc to go with this beautiful filet.Plan to serve it casually around the table in the living room, television going, talking and enjoying the family.

Try getting together all of the above (I'd go for white toast tips and maybe some dill sauce and hard boiled egg) ... Then ...

Get a bottle of Stoly and deeep freeze it along with tiny little (thimble sized, if you can) glasses. Take a nip of the frozen vodka and follow up with a taste of the above. Awesome.

Assorted bagels, sweet butter, salted butter, cream cheese, kalamata olives, tomato slices, red onion slices, sliced scallions. My preference is alot of kalamata olives.

You could also put out finely minced dill, capers, sour cream, lemon quarters, country style dijon mustard if some don't want the bread,just fillets in cream sauce.

There is a smoked salmon pasta I had once in a restaurant that was very good, I'm sure you can find a recipe on the net for a good one with the leftovers.

Put a half bagel of your choice topped with the cream cheese under the smoked salmon. Then top with a decent tomato, if available. Coffee on the side. Repeat as necessary. Enjoy.

I eat it the same as Tsores. I also like scrambling eggs with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and onions or a lox and cream cheese omelet.

the new york bagel thing is good, I just love smoked salmon's delicate sweet salty flavor. you know what i also like it in is, i'm a pescetarian so i put it under my eggs benedict atop the toasted english muffins in my sunday brunch. just thin slices to balance the flavor. when i was in high school and would perform recitals one caterer had a small sandwich made of almost this cracker type of bred with salmon, caper-dill-sour cream dressing with a drizzle of lemon and thin slices of onions and served with a side of pimento olives. it was delectable. and so light, i love that about smoked salmon. it's so light.

I just got a couple pounds of alder smoked king from Pure Food Fish Market in Pike Place Market. I much prefer the hot smoked salmon typical of the northwest.

I love smoked salmon-

4 ways I like it:

1. Semolina thin crust pizza topped with a blended cream cheese, sour cream, dill and minced green onion sauce. Topped with smoked salmon, thinly sliced rings of red onion and capers.

2. On top of Gunn's bagels with philly cream cheese, fresh snipped dill, vidalia onion, capers and freshly ground pepper.

3. Shaped like rosettes a top cucumber rounds with some boursin piped on top. A sprig of chive on top.

4. Lasagna aux deux saumons- a lasagna made with fresh poached salmon, smoked salmon, a creme fraiche -ricotta based sauce and fresh dill. I also add sauteed mushrooms.

I just received my order of smoked red sockeye from Vital Choice in WA. It is smoked with minimal sugar over alderwood, flash frozen. You simply defrost in the fridge for a day and it's ready to eat. Wonderful firm texture and beautiful color. I'm serving 1/2" chunks on a small cracker with a dollop of Lakeside Horseradish Sauce (wonderful stuff) and topped with a caper for Christmas appetizers. Check out www.vitalchoice.com for some wonderful salmon and a myriad of other great stuff. Merry Christmas to all.

We smoke our own and it is hot smoked which is drier than cold smoked/lox type. For finger food - try it with crackers or crostini, cream cheese and then add your capers or hot pepper jelly. For salad - on a spinach salad with almonds, jack cheese, and almonds. For main dish - fettucine with an alfredo type sauce and peppers, onions, mushrooms, zucchini

Try alaska smoked salmon - Taku Smokeries in Juneau Alaska is the best!

We also smoke our own salmon, hot, cold and squaw candy which is my favorite. We like all the traditional accompaniments for the hot and cold but the squaw candy is usually eaten plain with plenty of licking of the fingertips afterwards!
