Sunday Brunch: Smoked Salmon and Fresh Fruit



Breakfast is the main meal in our house. It's the meal where we take time to sit down and talk while we eat. Especially on Sundays. On Sundays, we usually eat a little later, and we might have something special. Today was smoked salmon on homemade sourdough bread spread with dill goat cheese with a side of fresh berries and grapes.

I'm not going to lie, smoked salmon used to gross me out. It just seemed too raw, but I've been converted and now really like a thin slice on toast every now and then. It reminds me of our honeymoon where Jordan tried it for the first time. We took a short cruise for part of our honeymoon and took full advantage of the food. One of the best things about a cruise is that your food is included with your ticket, so because you're not technically paying at every meal, you have the freedom to get something else if you don't like your original order. That means you can try new foods that you would usually never choose in a regular restaurant! This was the case when Jordan decided to order smoked salmon for breakfast one day and led us to find out that we actually like it. So when I found some at our local Aldi, I got us a special Sunday brunch treat.

The key to enjoying smoked salmon is to not overdo it. A small, thin slice should be enough. Also serve it on crunchy toast and add a cream. I used goat cheese with dill but cream cheese will work just fine!

Mmm:9 looks really good! smoked salmon is one of my favorite things in sushi, have never really done fish for breakfast.

I'm really looking forward to shopping at this Aldi of which you speak of.

It looks beautiful but I'm having such a hard time letting go of my fish phobia! :) But it really is delish looking!

I'm thrilled you tried and have enjoyed smoked salmon. There are some weird kinds out there which can be a turn off, but generally you cannot go wrong with most varieties. If you want to taste something even better, look for smoked salmon as a "chunk". (I have no idea what to properly call that.) It is my absolute favorite version of smoked salmon. I'm attaching a link to an example of what I mean, but not exact product I've tried. https://d2lnr5mha7bycj.cloudfront.net/product-image/file/large_b9da554b-5f26-41e6-b0ef-caf18a86b529.jpg
