    I am a total Smoked Salmon fiend. You could serve this to me on a shoe and i would lick it clean :weirdo:
    I've had to bribe a few cafe owners to buy in the right ingredients, just so i could get my fix of my fave lunch evar!
    i reckon it's hard to beat this for such a quick & tasty lunch.
    I got a bit fancy and made my own bread, but you couldn't go too wrong with something from the local bakery.

    NOM NOM NOM.

    INGREDIENTS

    • 200 ml Bulla Premium Sour Cream
    • 1 loaf of your bread of choice (sour dough, continental or turkish) something with a bit of body to it is always best!
    • Whole egg mayonnaise (made from free range eggs)
    • Whole grain mustard
    • 100 g Tasmanian smoked salmon (50 g per person if you are making more)
    • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 handful of rocket leaves, stalks removed (you could also use basil if you prefer)
    • 1 punnet of cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    • Freshly cracked black pepper – to taste
    • 1 pinch sea salt flakes
    • 1 pinch dried herbs (optional)
    • Capers
    • Sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper

    METHOD

    1. Lightly toast the bread on both sides in the griller.

    2. Remove, then generously spread some mayonnaise and whole grain mustard.

    3. In a small bowl, lightly coat the rocket leaves, cherry tomatoes and some sliced red onion in olive oil, pepper & salt flakes, pinch dried herbs (optional)

    4. Gently place the salad mix onto the Crostini making sure to include a bit of everything.

    5. Layer the smoked salmon over the top.

    6. Garnish with a few capers & generous dollop of Bulla Premium Sour Cream & some Cayenne Pepper.

    Thx Keith!
    i am trying to find some spare time to share things.
    As for the photo, well that was me - far from your awesome pics but i'll take that compliment any day :thumbup:
    Not sure how pro it is since i had to use Darktable, a linux equivalent of lightroom :lol:
    I'd certainly love to do a course on how to use this damn thing though :D

    Looks delicious. :thumbup:

    Have you tried using cottage cheese instead of sour cream? I've found it goes really well with smoked salmon. Probably wouldn't be as picture-perfect though.

    Hi NymPhD,

    I can't say ive had cottage cheese with Smoked Salmon but i have had Bulla's Cottage Cheese in a few wraps before.
    I say if it tastes good .... go for it!
    Good thinking :cool:

    smoked salmon with anything besides cream cheese? Sacrilegious!

    Sounds pretty awesome though, going to have to give it a shot :thumbup:. I had some spicy smoked salmon that would have gone perfect with this too, might have to find some more (I bought it as a joke, actually turned out to be pretty good).

    At the scon family household we do something very similar for Christmas breakfasts.

    Bagels, cream cheese, red onion, capers, pickled jalapenos, smoked salmon, pepper and fresh lemon. Usually with a champers with O.J.
