Known for its wonderfully rich levels of natural fats and oils, our wild Alaskan King salmon makes a uniquely succulent smoked salmon with a soft, mild flavor.
The Nova salmon (named after Nova Scotia, where it originated) has a silky smooth texture that we thinly slice for your enjoyment. Nova style is similar to "lox" which many are familiar with, and quite different from SeaBear's flaky, moist, fully cooked Northwest smoked salmon. As with all SeaBear smoked salmon, our Nova style smoked salmon uses only 100% wild salmon and is smoked over slow-burning native alder wood for a distinctive, uniquely Northwest flavor.
Your Nova style smoked salmon is ready to serve and enjoy. We recommend serving it with crackers, slices of your favorite artisan breads, soft mild cheeses, thin slices of apple, sliced onions and capers. Also, try dipping Nova salmon in a mix of soy sauce and wasabi (Japanese horseradish). When choosing a wine, we recommend a nice refreshing white, such as Pinot Gris.
Nova Style Salmon Rice Squares
Makes about 20 pieces
1 3/4 cups sushi rice
2 tbsp. rice vinegar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 oz. caviar
chervil for garnish
Add sushi rice to boiling water, cover and allow to simmer on low for 15 min. or until tender. Lightly fluff the rice into a large bowl and toss rice with rice vinegar, and 1/2 tsp. salt until well coated.
When cool enough to handle, pat the rice into a 28cm X 30cm non-stick baking tray (If using a normal baking tray, line with plastic wrap).
Press the rice down firmly and leave to cool. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Cut the rice lengthways into two equal pieces while in the tray. Using a palette knife, carefully lift one half of the rice and set aside.
Cover the rice remaining in the tray with a thin layer of sour cream, then top with the nova. With a sharp knife, cut the salmon into small squares.
Top each piece with caviar and a little chervil
Nova Style Salmon Potato Baskets
Makes about 20 baskets
2 large Idaho potatoes
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. flour (approximately)
3 tbsp chives
1/2 cup sour cream
SeaBear Sockeye Nova, thinly sliced 1-inch pieces
chives, chopped for garnish
Peel the potatoes and slice them very thinly using a mandolin. Rinse the slices well and squeeze them dry thoroughly with paper towels.
In a small frying pan, saute the onion until soft.
Mix the potatoes together with flour, egg and chives. Season well with salt and pepper.
Grease a mini muffin tin.
Carefully arrange potato slices in a circular fashion. This should create a small potato basket.
Brush with some olive oil and bake at 350 until lightly browned.
When cool fill each basket with sour cream and nova. Garnish with chopped chives.
Your Nova style smoked salmon can stay frozen for up to 6 months or 4 weeks in the refrigerator unopened. Once opened you may store in the refrigerator up to 7 days.
