Just five ingredients, a few hours, and no fussing about with wood chips–with Suvie’s help, making your own “smoked” salmon is less expensive than buying it, and it couldn’t be easier to make. The process allows you to truly make the recipe your own: add less salt or sub in some lemon pepper and dill sprigs. Keep this recipe in your back pocket for an effortless way to reduce food waste. When you know you won’t get to that salmon in time, “smoke” it for later. Maybe you’ll serve it smorgasbord-style next to mustard, pickles, bread, and cheeses; or maybe you’ll perk up tomorrow’s bagel with cream cheese and flaked “smoked” salmon.
