The Hungry Man Eats

Salmon, Who Thought That Was a Good Idea, Right?

Trying out new and different ideas makes cooking (and eating) fun, but for every inspired idea you have, you are likely to have a clunker come out of your hungry mind every now and again. I remember a few years back, I had a wonderful smoked salmon sandwich out at a bagel place. The ingredients were simple, and the effort required was nil. I decided to try a homemade version posthaste.

Some time passed as I actually needed to get some of the ingredients, like the cream cheese, capers and salmon. One day I was fired up and ready to go, I had everything I needed(so I thought), including a nice fresh bagel. I was missing the smoked salmon as it turned out, but I had canned salmon on hand, surely that would be a decent substitution?

No, no it was not.

Drippy, messy and flavorless(compared to the compact smoky goodness that is smoked salmon).

I have learned a lot since then about knowing what goes well as a substitute food item, and tomorrow I will show you how to do the Smoked Salmon on a Bagel the right way(with a picture or two!)
