Saucy Salsa and Smoked Salmon Brunch Board

This brunch board by @girlswhoeat uses a simple, yet elegant arrangement of primarily fruits and vegetables, but the anchor is none other than smoked salmon. Sweet kiwis, strawberries, blood oranges, and blueberries find a counterpoint in the tart lemon slices. Cool cucumber slices, crisp red onion, and briny olives and capers bring the vegetal notes. And then the classic herbal quality of dill accentuates the natural flavors of our smoked salmon. Just ripe avocado, chive cream cheese, and soft-boiled eggs are perfect for schmearing on a few fresh bagels. What sets this brunch board apart though is the addition of a saucy tomato spread. Smoked salmon and salsa? Trust us, don’t knock it until you try it!

Smoked Salmon Valentine Brunch Board

Classic smoked salmon, gravlax smoked salmon, and smoked salmon pinwheels comprise the smoked fish components of this brunch board by @grateboards. The pièce de résistance though is the lovely smoked salmon heart that occupies center stage. Characteristic smoked fish brunch board elements, such as tomato slices, cucumbers and capers adorn the rest of the board along with everything bagel seasoning and a couple of flavored cream cheeses. In this case smoked salmon is truly where the heart is.

For those who love multiple breakfast or brunch proteins, we would suggest trying this board by @urbancookery.

Let your guests build their own smoked salmon bagel club by stacking smoked salmon, bacon, red onion, and capers inside a bagel of their choice schmeared with scallion cream cheese. For those who observe a kosher diet, remove the bacon!

This refined spread by cookbook author @yasminfahr is a great option for those who are looking to impress a group. From one of Yasmin Fahr’s most recent cookbooks Boards & Spreads, this curated, sharable, simple arrangement is great for any meal. This smoked salmon board features our classic Nova smoked salmon, but any variety would do well within this composition.

For those who love both cheese and smoked salmon, but maybe like cheese a little bit more, we would suggest this cheese, fruit, and nut board, which features our Spence & Co. Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon Pinwheels.

A mix of hard and soft cheeses, berries, dried fruits, nuts, and crostini, this board already has a lot, but the addition of our smoked salmon pinwheels is the real differentiator here.

The Classic Trio Brunch Board

This suggestion is for true lovers of smoked salmon, and it doesn’t get any simpler than this. Our classic trio of smoked salmon flavors: plain Nova smoked salmon, pastrami smoked salmon, and gravlax smoked salmon. That’s all there is to it. The rest is up to you! Do you want to serve bagels, crackers, or a dark and savory pumpernickel bread? Do you want to include schmears, condiments, a few simple lemon wedges, or something else entirely on the side? This is the smoked salmon equivalent of a clean slate. You know why you’re here. These are three of our most well-known smoked salmon flavors; the rest is up to you.

By now you have probably noticed that these ideas have been crowd sourced from influencers, as well as Acme Smoked Fish fans like you and me.

So, to accentuate this theme our last example is of a gathering where multiple spreads come together. Sometimes it’s good enough to say, “I’ll bring the smoked fish” and let everyone else bring the other pieces together!

These brunch boards are meant to serve as visual inspiration that are both pleasing to the eye and easy like Sunday morning.
