Salmon is a fish dish, featured on every health guru’s menu. There are plenty of recipes with this ingredient but none are difficult because salmon doesn’t need a lot of work to make it delicious.
Wild salmon is born in rivers. After a few years they swim to the ocean where they live until their return to the ‘birth river’ where they spawn.
There is however a huge demand worldwide and now most of the salmon we consume is farmed
No matter how popular this ingredient is, it always gives a gourmet touch to your aperitif or dinner. Its diversity makes it possible to come up with an entire salmon menu.
Today we will stick with an aperitif. It’s a cosy moment to share good stories and meanwhile a great occasion to degustate delicious finger food! Have it with some toast or serve it on cucumber for a more refreshing bite.
