Smoked salmon has been made and enjoyed by Native people for thousands of years, and Natives hold salmon in high respect. Many tribes depended heavily on the dish to get them through cold winter months and long journeys. Smoked salmon is made by salting and smoking fresh caught salmon at a high temperature so that it lasts a long time.  

The fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to reduce blood pressure and inflammation while decreasing many risk factors for disease. Smoked salmon is not only delicious and nutritious, but it is highly versatile and easy for anyone to enjoy. Below, we’ve highlighted five of our favorite ways to enjoy the delicious fish!
