More salmon

There's a lot to be said for eating free range produce but when it comes to fish I think the reverse is true. All the salmon you have seen in this blog is farmed. It means they are purpose bred and raised for eating not taken from the wild. When I see a fish species like John Dory or Orange Roughy in the supermarket or fish shop I cringe because although we are told that the reserves of these fish are being 'managed' you just know big business have put there spin on things and their sticky fingers in to yet another pie. The worst thing is that when people see these types of fish in the supermarket I'm sure they automatically think that it must be ok. Even crazier is that there is no demand for these endangered species of fish, if they weren't in the supermarkets we would eat something else.
Anyway enough proselytizing for one day here's breakfast.

Smoked Salmon Bagels

This is simply toasted bagels, smoked salmon and lettuce but the ingredient that really makes it is as below.
Take a small pot of lite cream cheese and add to a bowl, squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. Add capers a little parsely and salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Leave to stand for 30 mins in the fridge if you have time otherwise spread on the toasted bagels add the other ingredients and eat. Heaven.
