If you are looking for ideas of what to serve for a lighter, delicious brunch, nothing beats the ease of mini, open-faced salmon sandwiches. These little smoked salmon sandwiches are fun to assemble, or, you can even have everyone make his or her own, choosing from an assortment of toppings.
A small piece of smoked salmon goes along way and all you have to do is to flake the fillet gently, in order to separate it into small segments. If you are not a fan of salmon, smoked trout is a delicious alternative. Thinly sliced and toasted rye or whole wheat bread will serve especially well as a base for these open-faced sandwiches.
Here is a very loose list of ingredients you will need:
- Smoked Salmon, flaked, about 3-4 oz.
- Rye or whole wheat bread, toasted
- Whipped Cream Cheese
- English Cucumbers, unpeeled, sliced
- Red Onions, thinly sliced
- Capers or small Green Olives
- Fresh Dill or Fresh Chives
- Radishes, thinly sliced
- Lemon slices and Lemon zest
Once the mini sandwiches are assembled, all that is needed to do to complete them is a light drizzle of your best extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of coarse sea-salt and lemon zest!
