Smoked Salmon

Smoked salmon has been cured and then cold- or hot-smoked for added flavor. Smoked salmon is served thinly sliced, and it's a favorite seafood course on breakfast or brunch spreads. It's heaven on bagels with cream cheese and equally fantastic blended into egg dishes at breakfast or brunch.
