Since man has started cooking food, curing or smoking has been around. Initially it was for preservation purposes, since refrigerators were not yet around, man had to find other ways of making food last. Smoking food is still being practiced until today, but not to preserve it but to make it taste better. The smoke gives the meat a distinct flavor that changes and improves the normal taste of things. More often than not, fish and meats are the ones that are smoked, but cheeses, vegetables even fruits can be smoked. One of the most popular smoked dishes is smoked salmon, which is why there are tons of smoked salmon recipes out there.

Salmon is regarded as the king of fish because it is one of the best sources of Omega-3.Most cookbooks and online cooking aids carry at least one smoked salmon recipe because of the popularity of this preparation. Smoked salmon is a favorite of many because of its diversity and exquisite taste. It's versatility allows salmon to be mixed with almost any kind of dish, pastas and sandwiches are a common favorite.

When preparing smoked salmon recipes, you have to make sure that your salmon is always fresh, this way you can't go wrong. If you do, just follow the smoked salmon recipe and everything just falls into place. Since smoked salmon is already cooked, smoked salmon recipes don't usually require a long cooking process unlike some meats and chicken.
Smoked salmon recipes are quite convenient to make because it's already cooked to begin with.

The two important things that you have to take into account is your marinade, which should taste good, and the length and temperature of cooking. Smoked salmon is usually just mixed with the sauce at the last minute, just enough for it to get heated through. You don't want to overcook your salmon, this will shred it up and render it dry.

In a large bowl, mix first 6 ingredients together. Most of the time is spent on the preparation of the bread and other condiments and sauces. The same holds true when preparing salads, it's the other ingredients that take up time, not the smoked salmon itself. Mentioned previously, because smoked salmon is already cooked, all you have to do is toss it in with the other ingredients. Smoked salmon gives people the opportunity to make a high end dish in just a few minutes. Try and see how convenient it is to make a classy dish.
