Salmon Ham?

IMG_4614Lachsschinken is a dry cured pork ham. You could think of it as Bavaria’s alternative to proscuitto. Literally translated Lachsschinken means “salmon ham”.  Not surprising then that it is often served like smoked salmon, sliced so thin you can almost see through it and arranged on a platter with fried capers and chopped onion. But this smoked meat doesn’t need any extra adornment.  You will find yourself sneaking a few pieces that were meant for the platter when no one is looking!
