What is Hot-Smoked Salmon?

Cold-smoked salmon is smoked in temps below 80°F. The cold smoke doesn’t actually cook the fish, so the texture is much like raw salmon. Hot-smoked salmon, in contrast, is smoked in temperatures above 120°F and is fully cooked. Hot-smoked salmon is best in dips, salads, and of course breakfast casseroles!

Goat Cheese Substitutes

This recipe uses crumbled goat cheese, which has a firm texture and a tangy flavor. If goat cheese isn’t your thing, you can try:

  • Crumbled feta: Feta has a similar tanginess to goat cheese, but some people who just can’t do goat cheese (or can’t find it) find that feta is a good substitute.
  • Crumbled ricotta: Ricotta has a milder flavor and is a little softer than crumbled goat cheese (or feta). If you’re not big on a tangy flavor, try ricotta instead.
