5 delicious ways to serve smoked salmon

Salmon has lots of great benefits - it's an excellent source of protein, it’s loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, but best of all, there are so many delicious ways to serve and enjoy it - on toast, with pasta or even as a spread. The list could go on, so we have listed 5 delicious ways you can serve and enjoy smoked salmon below.

On a bagel or toast with smashed avocado and poached egg


Both hot and cold smoked salmon is delicious with poached egg and smashed avocado and makes such a nutritious dish for brunch. Better yet, it only takes around 15 to 20 minutes to make. If you’ve tried this tasty dish with poached eggs already, why not mix it up and try scrambled egg instead?

- 2 eggs
- White wine vinegar (for poaching)
- ½ avocado
- Salt and pepper to season
- Hollandaise sauce

On oat cakes with cream cheese or crème fraiche


Oat cakes topped with cream cheese and cold smoked salmon is the perfect traditional Scottish starter. It’s a light yet satisfying snack and will take you all of 5 minutes to prepare, not to mention it’s an impressive party appetizer too.

With salad


The great thing about salmon salads is that you can make them with almost anything. Smoked salmon can be served hot or cold in a salad, whatever you prefer. One of our favourite salads is smoked salmon salad nicoise, a twist on a classic salad Niçoise using smoked salmon instead of tuna, served perfectly as a light lunch.
