Healthy Smoked Salmon Recipes
Smoked salmon is a great way to start the day, but there are plenty of ways to use this flavorful fish throughout the day too.
Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins, vitamin D, and vitamin E. And it’s a great way to add healthy seafood, protein, and antioxidants to your diet.
We love to find a variety of ways to serve this delicious and healthy fish in our home. With this collection of salmon recipes, you’ll find something the whole family will enjoy!
You could either purchase the smoked salmon already from the grocery store or you could use a smoker to give it the delicious smoky flavor.
We love to use our Traeger smoker nearly year round. That delicious smoke flavor is worth it! And these scrumptious recipes using smoked salmon is perfect to make for anytime of the year.
Where to buy good quality salmon?
Our family has been ordering from Vital Choice for many years. They are such good high quality, sustainable, wild and not farmed seafood. Plus they use ethical sourcing and practice excellent environmental shipping standards.
This is a brand that I highly recommend and support!
🍅 Recipe tips
I wholeheartedly believe that good quality ingredients make for the best recipes! I don’t recommend any fake or overly processed ingredients and will usually recommend organic / non-gmo ingredients whenever possible.
Sourcing good quality ingredients can be difficult sometimes. Did you know that most of the olive oil in grocery stores aren’t truly authentic? Or that most seafood is farmed and sourced from China? These are just a couple of examples of confusing product labels.
How do we find the BEST ingredients? If you’re like me, then sourcing clean ingredients is important to you! So, I’ve created a favorite shop page with all of my recommendations. Here you can find all of the best places to source good quality ingredients!
