Smørrebrød with Smoked Salmon and Caviar

Smørrebrød with Smoked Salmon and Caviar

I think we are overdue for another piece of Smørrebrød (Danish open faced sandwich) and lets make it a festive one. I love smoked salmon and I love caviar. Of course I don’t use expensive caviar, just good old Lumpfish, and so for the purpose of this post we’ll leave the expensive stuff for the Czars and the Royals. But I am picky about my smoked salmon. I don’t care for salmon that is too soft in texture, I prefer for it to be firm and not fall apart when I separate the slices. There is nothing worse than mushy salmon. The mustard I used was a Swedish mustard with dill, but any sweet mustard will do. Happy New Years to all of you!

1 slice white bread

butter, optional

Butter bread if desired. Here I used dill as my base, but you could also use a nice fresh lettuce, for example Boston lettuce. Arrange smoked salmon in a decorative fashion. Top with a little caviar (lumpfish). Add a sweet mustard to the plate for dipping. Enjoy with an ice cold beer. Skål and Cheers!

Blinis

Blinis with Salmon and Caviar

This post is not a recipe but rather a collection of ingredients which make up a delicious little appetizer. I first had this at my Danish friend Tina’s house and I was immediately hooked. It consist of these wonderful mini pancakes called Blinis which are Russian in origin and traditionally made of buckwheat flour and yeast. However, the ones I got a hold of was actually French Blinis which have no buckwheat flour in them. I choose to serve the Blinis at room temperature but you can warm them up a little if you so choose. Then add the following toppings of your choice; slice of smoked Salmon, sliced hard-boiled egg, dollop of sour cream and top off with caviar. I just love the rude popping sensation against the roof of my mouth from the caviar, delicious!

Blini topping ideas:

Salmon, hard-boiled egg, sour cream and caviar

Chopped strawberries marinated in balsamic vinegar

Brie and fruit preserves

Chopped, cooked fresh apples with cinnamon

Creme Fraiche, minced red onion, smoked salmon and dill
