I love smoked salmon! I mean I can eat an entire package of that salty, smoky, luxurious flavored fish all by itself as a snack…or a meal. I’m always thinking of new ways to incorporate my favorite fish into meals – salmon should fear me! I love wrapping shrimp in smoked salmon at baking it with a little truffle oil, lemon, dill, and capers. I can’t turn down a simple rolled slice of smoked salmon filled with capers and lemon-garlic hummus.
Here is one of my fav to-go snacks with, of course, that heavenly smoked fish:
Grill asparagus until lightly charred. Remove from heat. Wrap each spear with one slice of smoked salmon. Here are some filling ideas:
Flavor Explosion #1: Sprinkle with dill and drizzle of lemon juice.
#2: Sprinkle chopped cilantro and a dollop of salsa on the inside of the salmon before wrapping. Drizzle of lime juice.
#3: Line inside of salmon slice with lemon & garlic hummus and capers, then wrap asparagus.
#4: Drizzle soy sauce and Sriracha on inside of salmon. Delicious with nut-cracker crumbs, too!
#5: Salmon stuffed with goat cheese, sprig of thyme and dash of rosemary, drizzle of honey.
Refrigerate. Grab a few spears on the run for a perfect, healthy midday snack.
Don’t like salmon? Shame on…just kidding, I won’t judge. Try prosciutto, salami, bacon, thinly sliced grilled chicken!
