Cooking With Smoked Salmon: Not Just Bagel With Lox

Posted: Updated:

I absolutely love smoked salmon. The salty, fatty, coral-colored slices of salmon are a perfect addition to breakfast, lunch or dinner. Of course, most of you are familiar with bagels smeared with cream cheese and topped with smoked salmon, but there are so many other ways to use this good-for-you and rich in omega-3 fatty acids fish.

For starters, how about making your own smoked salmon cream cheese?
