Any ideas on dressing it up for serving?

Ideas for serving smoked salmon

Sounds like something awesome for a thanksgiving party! Do you think it would go well with Salmon? Would you mind give me a rough recipe?

Thanks happybaker, I was actually responding to Ttrockwood. But a light pickle sounds awesome! Cucumber is great with smoked salmon so why not pickles? :)

This sounds like a great idea! I was planning on putting out some foie gras mousse also...some foie mousse plus salmon and fig sounds like it would be awesome!!

Deviled eggs sound good but I don't want to make anything remotely that time consuming. I may put out some choped med boiled eggs with the salmon though.

As for the cream cheese I make a mix of cream cheese, sour cream, lemon juice and scallions to a slightly runny texture, so it can be easily spooned on.

Making pre-assembed bites is exactly what I don't want to do...ain't nobody got time for that! :D

This party is a feast I throw for the best of my friends once a year so it's meant to be overindulgent and excessive consumption is encouraged. :)

I'm personally not a huge fan of dill so I usually leave it out but I will add it to the tray this time! Thanks.

I've never had preserved lemons before but this sounds awesome! And olives would be great too.

Unfortunately the party is this weekend so I won't have time to do the preserved lemons but I will make a batch for next time! Thank you.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. It appears I did not make my post clear - I'm not looking for alternate preparations (I don't want to prepare anything, I just want to put the platter out and let people put it together themselves), I'm just looking for things other than the classics to put out as a part of the tray. Either way thank you for all of your suggestions and keep them coming!

I googled it - it looks like it's basically a spicy cucumber cream cheese. Probably in the spirit of a spicy tzatziki or raita. I think I might try this suggestion in addition to my usual Sour Cream/ Chream cheese/lemon Scallion mix! Thank you.

Ideas for serving smoked salmon

Hey guys, I'm throwing a party and would like to put out a smoked salmon plate that guests can self-assemble. I have a ton of rye bread so I figure I'll serve the salmon with rye, and the usual toppings (Scallion cream cheese/sour cream, red onion, tomato, capers, etc)

But I'm wondering...any hounds have unusual but delicious accompaniments for smoked salmon?

So What Dishes do you top with a Runny Poached Egg?

I'm going to do this too. I can't wait to see the waitress's reaction.

Hahahah! That made me laugh out loud. What other goopy food stuffs can we add to that concoction?

My mom goes picking for stuff all the time. I...just don't have any idea what I'm looking at if I'm not at the grocery store. LOL.

Why Chinese cuisines/dishes do not include raw vegetables...

Haaha those are some tricky nicknames you got for your dog.

My mom tells me there's a special kind of denjang chigae made just for using on ssam, it's almost like a sauce. I should ask her how to make it...

Thanksgiving--how many side dishes do you make for small groups?

For me it's not thanksgiving without stuffing, green bean casserole, and a sweet potato dish. Everything else is optional but the more the better. It only happens once a year, go nuts!

Where do you find ramps? I've never seen em at any market around here.

I do the same thing with curry/stew type things. Some times I'll do that with Italian red sauce too!

I feel like this is cheating, since it's a part of the dish. ;)

Sandwiches in Monmouth County

If I remember correctly Sal's bread just has way too much sesame for my taste. :/

The plus side of cheap ground beef

When it comes to ground beef I go for the cheapest, period. You can always cook the fat out. And as you discovered, the fat is great for other uses.

Besides, lean ground beef tastes like crap anyway.

Sandwiches in Monmouth County

Just had a bite of my friend's chicken sandwich from Taste of Italy in Ocean. I normally like a light and fluffy Italian bread on my subs, but they use a dense and hearty bread with a lot of chew. It was delicious! I plan on going back for a sandwich, just for the bread.

Yes! That's one thing you rarely see in the states, a proper ssam platter. BBQ ssams get all the attention but the true glory is in ssam with loads of herby greens, mixed grain rice/barley type thing and some stanky denjang chigae to go along with it. Add some rustic namul to it and that's my idea of vegetable heaven. My mother breaks this out in the summer with the stuff she grows in her garden and it's just magnificent.

I want some now too!!!

Whoops I forgot about the fresh leaf options. I take back what I said - thanks for the correction. :)

I think the person I was responding to might have been using bo ssam to mean ssam in general? I do love when you have a wide variety of fresh leaves for ssam. Yummmm.

Do certain menu items put you off going to a restaurant?

And if you really hate it that much, why wouldn't you ask them to just leave it off or make you something without foam?
