Smoked Salmon Sandwiches

One of our favorite restaurants has this Smoked Salmon Sandwich on their lunch menu and it’s what I order almost every time

Fresh smoked salmon, briny capers, zesty lemon, crisp cucumbers… so good I had to start making it at home

The key is fresh ingredients.  Most grocery stores will have a decent selection of good quality smoked salmon

I like to set all of the ingredients up first on a board and then assembly is a breeze!

First step is to mix up your scallion cream cheese

I let an 8 oz block of cream cheese sit out until it reached room temperature.  Slice up 1/2 cup of the dark green scallion tops and stir into softened cream cheese.  Once mixed, chill in the fridge while you assemble the rest of the ingredients

I’ve mentioned this before, but did you know how easy it is to grow scallions right on your countertop?

Lightly toast a baguette and cut into 4 sections

Thinly slice seedless English cucumber & fresh lemon

Assemble 8 oz smoked salmon, dill, capers, kosher salt, black pepper and the scallion cream cheese


Spread both sides of the baguette with the scallion cream cheese and add a layer of cucumber.  I like to salt and pepper the cuke side

Top the cucumber layer with a healthy serving of smoked salmon and sprinkle of dill

I like to press the capers into the cream cheese on one side so they don’t roll off.  You can rinse your capers before adding to your sandwich, but I love the briny flavor, so I add them in un-rinsed

Lastly, squeeze fresh lemon over the salmon side & carefully close both sides

Best part is this sandwich can be served for brunch, lunch or dinner!
