Smoked Salmon Sandwich

This is my first sandwich recipe in BYG. I love to try seafood dishes and this one is my newly found love. I was introduced to Salmon fish when we came to US. When I first heard about smoked salmon, I was skeptical if it would be too bland for my taste palette. Anyway I wanted to give it a try. The smoked salmon complements really well with the herbs and we all loved it.

The cold smoked salmon used in this sandwich is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and is a good source of proteins and vitamins. From a short googling, I decided to pair it with mayonnaise. For a more healthier alternative, you can pair it with cream cheese too. This mayo-smoked salmon sandwich with the touch of parsley, celery and dried dill weed is a treat to enjoy.

This smoked salmon sandwich is ideal to serve for a tea time party in small portions. It is very easy to bring together and no cooking is involved. When you are planning for a party, this sandwich would be a great choice of appetizer and time saver. The cold smoked salmon is available in the deli section of most of the supermarkets.

Ingredients:

  1. Smoked salmon thinly sliced (nova) as needed
  2. Bread slices 8
  3. Mayonnaise 4 tbsp.
  4. Dried dill weed 1/4 tsp. (Optional)
  5. Parsley thinly chopped 3 to 4 tbsp.
  6. Celery thinly chopped 3 tbsp.
  7. Pepper 1/4 tsp.
  8. Salt a small pinch (Optional. Smoked salmon is very salty. So add salt only if you think, it is needed.)

  1. Cut each sandwich in to three portions.

Note:

  1. If the bread slices are very soft, brush melted butter before topping the mayonnaise spread. This helps to prevent the bread getting soggy.
  2. For a healthier alternative, you can substitute mayonnaise with 4oz cream cheese for above measurement.
  3. A 120z package of smoked salmon can make about 10 to 12 whole sandwiches(30 to 36 small servings)
  4. You can make sandwich, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate it to use on next day.
