House-Cured Salmon, Smoked Eel, Poached Prawn, Roasted Beet Salad with Glenlivet 15 at Paiza Club Las Vegas

Paiza Club Salmon Eel Beet Salad

It's been a few weeks, but I can't stop thinking about the impression this salad-course dish made on me at a special Glenlivet Whiskey pairing dinner in The Venetian Las Vegas' exclusive Paiza Club. You can't really make a reservation there, or order this dish, so I wrestled with even posting it... but let it serve as inspiration. The composition may look simple (or even non-existent) but the lovely trio of seafoods played off each other and the earthy beet salad, while pairing excellently with Glenlivet, a surprisingly food-friendly spirit.
