Carrot Smoked Salmon

I was shocked with how this came out!

What is possible with carrots never ceases to amaze me!

This carrot smoked salmon is great as a side, a filling for sushi, or as part of a delicous bowl!

Simply adding some nori and spices like paprika really bring this dish to life!

Hope you give this a try!

You Need

  • 6 Carrots, ends removed
