Smoked Salmon and Fennel with Dill

Smoked Salmon and Fennel with Dill

This dish comes together fast with very simple preparation and just a few ingredients. It takes the traditional pairing of salmon and dill and adds aromatic fennel and healthy coconut oil. It can take the place of a scrambled egg dish, or, if you want to make the dish more substantial you can add an egg to it. Kids like it as well.

    My 1-yr-old loved this dish!

    A bit expensive for the output (I got a large fennel bulb for $3, fresh dill for $2, and cubed smoked salmon for about $5) but quite delicious.

    This was my first venture into using fennel.

    Got to say this dish was delicious. It took a bit to find a clean smoked salmon but I did manage to find one.

    I used the virgin coconut oil so the added “coconut” flavor really made this whole dish pop.

    I have to say though that there is no way 1/2 of this would work for me as a meal. I ended up eating the whole thing. It wasn’t a huge dish.

    I didn’t have and dill, but I did cut up some of the fronds from the fennel and sprinkled on top.

    It went together SUPER quick and is a nice alternate to an egg scramble and a lot quicker.

    Thank you for including the time period to saute,

    Is there something other than salmon I could use with this…not a salmon fan

    Has anyone tried this with left over salmon instead of smoke?

    We loved this although I think we might add an egg next time. I got hungrier a lot earlier in the day after eating this one.

    This would probably be good with any fish. Smoked trout is easy to find, or catch/smoke yourself.

    Very tasty. I, too, put it with an egg.
