A classic appetizer of smoked fish with vegetables and winter fruits is ideal to start a hearty Christmas lunch.

Rich in aromas and flavors: the smoked fish, the light hint of anise from the fennel, the acidity of the orange and the bitterness of its peel, the honey gives the sweet note that is needed and the grains of pomegranate are unparalleled in decorating a Christmas dish.

Remove the salmon from the marinade and arrange the slices on a large serving plate.

In a bowl, place about half of the marinade, add 4 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper, preferably white or pink, and mix vigorously with a whisk to obtain a creamy mixture.

Take sliced fennel and endive and spread them evenly over the salmon, drizzle with the mixture you have just made and garnish the dish with the remaining pomegranate seeds, and serve.

This salmon dish is amazing!

I absolutely love salmon and am always looking for different ways to eat it. The sweetness of the honey and the tanginess of orange don't cover the taste of salmon. It is now one of my favorites!!
