This was a happy accident.
My favorite bartender gave me a gift of "Candied Smoked Canadian Wild Salmon".
What is that?
I had to look at the package label, St. Jean's Cannery in British Columbia for the answer.
It's sort of like the kippered salmon I buy at Russ & Daughters only a bit sweeter and the consistency of beef jerky.
It is also known as "Alaskan Salmon Candy" or "Indian Salmon Candy".
Sounds weird, I know, but it tastes delicious. It's addictive.
You can make it yourself at home if you have patience and a smoker (which many of you do).
It's just a brown sugar and salt coating and then it's cold smoked and air dried under a fan.
It's my new favorite thing.
I had a lot of it so decided to make a salad with it for brunch.
I roasted my garden beets and red potatoes together and cooked some hard boiled eggs.
I made a delicious horseradish creme fraiche to drizzle over and invited a couple over for brunch.
I doubt you will ever make this, but if you really want the recipe, then just ask me.
