Remember those bagels I posted just a few days ago? Yep, those Black Midnight ones.  Anyway, what’s better to have on a bagel than smoked salmon? Thought it was time to try out making our own!

I’ve personally never been a big fan of smoked salmon, but Josh said he used to love it! – so another reason to give it a go!

This was waaay easier than I thought. I’m not sure why I put off making it for so long. I checked out recipes by Green Evi and Olives for Dinner but thought I’d have a go at making my own.

The liquid smoke is pretty essential in this recipe for giving it a nice smoky flavour. You can usually get this at a health food shop, cruelty free shop or buy it online! I blanched the carrots before I baked them – it helps give them a softer consistency.

If you leave this in the fridge for a couple of days it softens up a bit more and tastes even better!

You know what – this Vegan Smoked Salmon goes really well in salad too. You could try it on our Atlantis Salad. It also pairs really well with crackers or rice cakes.

We made Vegan Smoked Salmon (Carrot Lox) - marinated carrot with some smoky goodness to pair perfectly with bagels and vegan cream cheese. 

Ingredients
  • 2 carrots peeled
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp peppercorns
  • generous sprig of fresh dill
Instructions
  1. Pre heat oven to 180℃

  2. Peel carrots thinly. I used a standard peeler for this. Once the carrot gets thinner it gets a bit harder to peel so I eat that bit! Steam the carrots for 5 minutes on a double boiler. Then add the carrots and all other ingredients in a baking dish and mix well. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes. Let cool and transfer to a container. Keep refrigerated. Enjoy on a bagel with vegan cream cheese!
