SMØRBRØD Two different types of Norwegian Smoked Salmon Open Sandwiches

An important Scandinavian contribution to modern international cuisine is the smoked salmon.  The Norwegian smoked salmon dishes developed into a variety of dishesTypically the smoked salmon is  served with scrambled eggs, dill, sandwiches or mustard sauce. A long tradition in Norway is the open-face sandwich with smoked salmon.

In this blog posting we are making two different types of Norwegian Smoked Salmon Open SandwichesOne of the main element of both open face sandwich is that the ingredients should be fresh.  Both are very easy and quick to make for either, lunch, dinner or a larger SMØRBRØ.  You can even cut the sandwiches into smaller appetizers.  The smoked salmon sandwiches are great to cut into small appetizers. These appetizers are great for entertaining and your guests will enjoy the tasty smoke salmon. We have included our YouTube video to see how both sandwich are made too.

First Open Face Sandwich is the Smoke Salmon & Egg Sandwich

The ingredients should complement one another with respect both to taste and appearance.
* 1 slice of Italian or French white bread
* European style butter
* 1 smoke salmon fillet
* slices of hard boiled egg
* sprinkle capers
* snippings of dill
* slices of tomato is optional


Spread the butter across either an Italian or French bread. The butter or spread helps keep the bread from drying out and absorbing liquids from toppings in addition to adding flavor.
Then add 1 smoke salmon fillet on top of the white bread. Add a couple of slices of hard boiled eggs on top. Garnish with a sprinkle of capers and snippings of dill. It is that easy!

Please note that because open face sandwiches are about appearances, it is important not to press the toppings onto each other. Just lay each item on top of each other.
