Smoked Salmon and Fresh Garden Relish
Recipe By Dr. Michael Fenster, MD
The baguette slices serve as automatic portion control for the smoked salmon and veggies. Salmon is a great source of lean protein and beneficial omega 3 and 6 fats. I prefer a wild salmon whenever possible. Some research has suggested that varying the diet and activity of native salmon can affect their fat content and overall composition. And there are few things as satisfying as the sweet and salty flavor of perfectly prepared wild salmon. We used some smoked salmon on fresh baguette, but you can use different types of bread, fish and preparations to keep things interesting all summer long!
