Here's an idea for a delicious appetizer course that your guests will go crazy over. A WHOLE Smoked Salmon! For the past three years we have tested this idea, and now we can't imagine Purim without a giant fish gracing our table! Now a smoked fish with no embellishments, looks well, dead, so be sure to fill the platter with colorful vegetables and lots of lemons.
It's hard to tell from the photo, but this fish is more than three feet long and is even too long for the largest aluminum platter available here, so in this case I had no choice but to just let him hang off the ends! But that's okay, Purim in our house is a festive all day affair with lots of guests coming and going, so the fish will anyway disappear in no time! Purim Sameach!
Just in, a photo of this year's salmon, to give you a better idea of the size. My kids were so excited to see this whole fish and even gave him a name! My four year old is holding band-aids for some reason maybe he thinks the fish needs one too?
