Smoked Salmon Salad

IMG_1808b

My fishmonger L’ambiance des Halles  https://www.facebook.com/lambiance.deshalles?hc_location=stream has two types of lovely smoked salmon; one he buys smoked and the other he smokes himself from the ocean fresh fish he buys.

Jade and I each had one of these salads for brunch, might as well say breakfast :)  I was thinking about some Jamie salmon scrambled eggs http://cookinginsens.wordpress.com/2011/11/18/scrambled-eggs-and-smoked-salmon-a-la-jamie/ but was mind snatched by a perfectly ripe avocado.

Smoked Salmon Salad for Two

1 generous slice of smoked salmon, cut into squares

1 generous chunk of smoked salmon, cubed

Mustard vinaigrette

Mixed salad greens

2 red spring onions, sliced

4 cherry tomatoes, halved

1 avocado, sliced and tossed with the juice of 1/2 lime

Chives, sliced

Toss the two salmons with a little mustard vinaigrette and set aside.  Arrange the salad greens on two plates, sprinkle over the onion slices, mound the salmon on top, surround with the tomatoes and avocado slices.  Sprinkle the chives over the salmon.

    That’s a lovely brunch – I’d like to try fishmonger’s own smoked salmon ;-)

  2. He is rightfully proud of it. Quality, quality, quality!

    That looks scrumptious. Do you feel it’s important to use two different styles of smoked salmon here, or was that just for fun (and because you could)? Either way, it looks like a wonderful summer meal.

  4. This looks incredible!

    I love eating smoked salmon for breakfast. I always have. It’s not the biggest thing in the States except for bagels with lox. Not until I went to Europe did I realize that my family is not that out there eating all sorts of smoked fish for breakfast. Beautiful salad.
