Acme Turns to Japan to Season Its Latest Smoked Salmon


Smoked salmon has a new edge. Acme Smoked Fish, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, has introduced smoked salmon seasoned with shichimi togarashi, a Japanese spice blend, giving it a subtle but distinctive chile and citrus kick. The blend includes red chile, sesame seeds, orange peel, seaweed and other spices. This is not the salmon to put on an everything bagel. Go for plain or roll the salmon in nori, perhaps smeared with cream cheese.

Togarashi Smoked Salmon, $25 for eight ounces, acmesmokedfish.com; also available at the warehouse on Fridays, 30 Gem Street (North 15th Street), Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
