Create a new experience for your diners with an excellent interactive presentation and a new combination of flavor and texture. The raw salmon is smoked tableside under a glass with mesquite smoke using the Smoking Gun. The glass is then removed in front of the diner to release the smoke and uncover a delicious smoked raw salmon. The smoked raw salmon is sprinkled with crispy shallots and micro greens and it is served with toasted baguette slices and a dill cream.
Because the smoke from the Smoking Gun is cool, the raw salmon is smoked without being cooked and thus maintaining its silky and moist texture, creating an exciting and original combination of flavor and texture.
Blow smoke into upside down glass, place smoke-filled glass over plated food, serve and remove at table in front of diner. It will provide the diner with an immediate sense of pleasure and anticipation when the dish is uncovered.
