Wondering how to serve smoked salmon in a hurry using ingredients you may already have at hand?

We’ve thrown together our simplest smoked salmon ideas—all are quick and easy to make, and there are no hard-to-find ingredients. In fact these are standard ingredients found in most kitchens on any given day.

Whether you’re making a casual snack for yourself or looking for quick ways to serve smoked salmon to hungry guests, these ideas are guaranteed to satisfy with the least amount of effort.

1. Keep it simple 
Drape thinly sliced smoked salmon onto small chunks of warm crusty bread and top with a dab of sour cream and a twist of black pepper.

2. Add some bite 
Cut brown or whole-wheat bread into 2-inch squares; plop 1/2 a teaspoon of horseradish sauce onto each square; top with a fold of thinly sliced smoked salmon; garnish with a small sprig of dill.

3. Create some crunch 
Cut radishes into 1/8-inch slices; cover each slice with a teaspoon of chopped smoked salmon and a dollop of sour cream; top with a sprinkle of seasoned, grated egg yolk—hard boiled.

4. Roll it up 
Spread a thin layer of cream cheese over a slice of smoked salmon; add half a dozen capers and a little black pepper; roll it around a spear of chilled cucumber or a grilled asparagus.

5. Be posh 
Layer smoked salmon, thinly sliced cucumber and black pepper between 4 slices of soft, buttered bread in this order: bread, salmon, bread, cucumber, bread, salmon, bread. Cut into bite-sized triangles.

6. Get fancy 
Chop avocado, smoked salmon and mozzarella into small pieces. Layer the ingredients in martini glasses with a twist of black pepper between layers, and top off with a zig-zag of balsamic glaze.

7. Pump up the protein 
Heap a cracker with egg salad—be generous with the mayonnaise—and top it off with several strips of smoked salmon and a trio of capers.

8. Impress a New Yorker 
Cut a bagel from the center out into small wedges about ½-inch thick. Turn on their sides and top with salmon, cream cheese, and chopped red onion. Add a squeeze of lemon.

9. Go Italian 
Layer smoked salmon between a slice of mozzarella and tomato and top with small fold of salmon. Drizzle with balsamic glaze; garnish with a fresh basil leaf.

10. Be a purist 
Cut slices of smoked salmon into 1-inch strips; squeeze fresh lemon juice over each strip; add black pepper to taste; roll the strips up and spear them with a toothpick. Sprinkle with chopped dill.

We hope that at least one of these smoked salmon ideas will become a quick and easy favorite in your kitchen!

How to Buy, Defrost, Cook, and Serve Langoustines

November 18, 2015


Langoustines have a pure and delicate taste; some argue the langoustine is even more delicious than lobster. Considered by many seafood connoisseurs as ‘the finest of all crustacea’, the langoustine is the prawn’s posh cousin. Pricier than prawns, langoustines are actually a relative of the lobster, but they don’t grow nearly as big. Nine or ten inches is considered the high end for a langoustine.
