easy smoked salmon recipes

Smoked salmon is a surprisingly versatile ingredient, coming in two significantly different versions. Most often found in dinner party canapes, the silky, salt-cured cold-smoked salmon may be the one with which you're most familiar. However, the flaky hot-smoked salmon, which is similar to home-cooked salmon, is the cheat's go-to ingredient for quick seafood dinners. Here, we've pulled together some of our favourite recipes that feature both varieties. From quick pasta recipes to our popular blinis with salmon and creme fraiche, you'll have no shortage of inspiration.
