Smoked Salmon cheesecake is the savory version of the famous American cheesecake. The base, just as crunchy as the original, is made with butter and crumbled taralli. The filling, on the other hand, surprisingly creamy and tasty, is made with fresh soft cheeses, wild fennel and spices. Salmon, a prized topping of this preparation, makes everything even more delicious and refined. Ideal for the summer season, this savory cheesecake does not require baking and it can be served for a very special dinner.
