Peppercorn Smoked Salmon on a Pretzel Bun Sandwich

What do you think of pretzel buns? These have been popping up in both restaurants and grocery stores.  I really like the texture of a pretzel bun.  It is denser and chewier than a standard soft bun.  Plus the pretzel bun can hold the condiments better than a standard bun. As you can see with the list of our ingredients we need a sturdy bun to keep from the sandwich from falling apart.  The pretzel bun compliments the peppercorn smoked salmon too.  Here is a fun twist to make a delicious smoked salmon sandwich using a pretzel bun.

Karen Grete prepares this delicious pretzel bun sandwich

  • 1 pretzel bun 
  • 1 8 ounces peppercorn smoked salmon
  • European style butter such as Icelandic butter 
  • a couple of tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • chopped chives
  • snippings of dill
  • thinly sliced cucumbers
  • lettuce
  • baby tomatoes (optional)


Slice the pretzel bun in half horizontally Place base bun on small plate. Spread a European style butter on one half of the bun.  

In another bowl add 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, chopped onions, snippings of dill and squeeze 1 lemon wedge.  Mix everything together well.  

Next add a tablespoon of the mayonnaise mixture on top of the buttered pretzel bun. Top with peppercorn smoked salmon.  Add another tablespoon of the mayonnaise mixture on top of the peppercorn smoked salmon.  Garnish with slices of cucumber and lettuce over the mayonnaise.


Place the remaining pretzel bun half on top of the other half. It is that easy!
