Smoked Salmon

Smoked Salmon

Salmon is a Must at Christmas on your table. This fish is very popular around the world and very easy to find in different formats. Today I bought a loin of smoked salmon, to be able to cut it the way I want. The smoky flavor of this fish and the contrast with the garnish I put make this starter so delicious. It brings up a lot of memories of Christmas.
