How to enjoy Vita smoked salmon
Whether you wish to feast on the premium Classic Nova Salmon, the hot smoked salmon, the
peppered salmon or the wild nova salmon, they're ready to serve, already lightly smoked with tasty

process to deliver smoked salmon that is fresh and delicious.
Salmon is among the healthiest fish, being packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Research shows that
these fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function, along with normal growth and development.
They also help to reduce inflammation and may even lower the risk of diseases like cancer, arthritis
and heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least two times per
week, with a serving size of about 3.5 ounces, cooked.
There are a number of foods that pair well with smoked salmon. Here are some of the best:
Roasted potatoes: Imagine tender flaky hot smoked salmon with cast-iron potatoes roasted with
rosemary and onion to pack a punch of flavor. The salty fish works best with crispy foods, such as
golden brown roasted potatoes.
Salad: There's only one thing your bowl of greens needs to become healthier and more tasty:
smoked salmon. There's nothing better than the buttery texture of cold smoked salmon mixed in with
veggies and salad greens with a light dressing.
A dip: Smoked salmon doesn't need fancy fixings to be delicious. Dip slices of smoked salmon in a
soy sauce for a tangy flavor which pairs well with the smokiness of the fish.
Bagels: Also known as a bagel and lox, this popular sandwich is enjoyed at delis all around the
world. Grab your favorite bagel, spread cream cheese on the top and finish it off with thin slices of
smoked salmon. If you don't have bagels, a piece of toast with butter on it will do just fine as well.
Chowder: Who said good chowder only included clams? Next time you whip up a bowl of chowder,
replace the clams with pieces of smoked salmon.
Tacos: Forget the ground beef, chicken or steak and replace your typical taco meat with smoked
salmon. The fish and taco seasoning together create an unforgettable dish. Top off the tacos with a
bit of lettuce, grilled corn, cheese, salsa and avocado to finish off the meal.
