What is it?

Hot-smoked salmon may be cured or uncured, but unlike cold-smoked salmon,  it cooks in the smoker, giving it the firm and meaty appearance of regular cooked salmon with a full smoky flavor. Delicious hot or cold, it makes a wonderful addition to scrambled eggs, pastas, and potato dishes.

Don’t have it?

Regular (cold-) smoked salmon is not a good substitute as its texture is completely different. Grilled or baked salmon fillet is a better option.

How to choose:

Different cures and choice of wood for smoking all effect the salmon’s flavor, so your best bet is to try a few brands to see what style you like.

How to prep:

The salmon is often flaked with a fork before being added to egg or pasta dishes.

How to store:

Unopened packages of hot-smoked salmon will keep for quite a while in the refrigerator; check the use by date on the package.
