Smoked salmon sandwich ideas

Open sandwiches with smoked salmon

Three delicious sandwich ideas for National Sandwich Day

 

It’s National Sandwich Day on Saturday 3 November. And if, like us, you love the traditional smoked salmon sandwich options (smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel; smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches) but are looking to widen your smoked salmon sandwich repertoire, then you’ll love these three interesting smoked salmon sandwich ideas.

Whilst National Sandwich Day was essentially created by a well known high street sandwich brand in order to sell more sandwiches, let’s take a little time to celebrate this much loved meal – but with a smoked salmon twist, of course.

 

Smoked salmon club sandwich

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 3 x slices of the freshest bread you can find (brown or white)
  • 2 x tablespoons of Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 x tablespoon of Neufchatel cheese
  • 1 x teaspoon freshly chopped dill
  • 1 x pack of John Ross Jr’s Traditional Smoked Salmon
  • 3 x leaves of iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 2 x slices of a fresh, large tomato
  • 1/2 x teaspoon capers (chopped)
  • 1 x pinch of salt

 

Method 

Grab a bowl and mix together the yogurt, cheese, salt and the dill until thoroughly blended. Then toast the bread. Layer the mixture on each slice, add a third of the lettuce on top and then, on top of that, add a third of the smoked salmon. If you like capers, add a sprinkle here, too, before adding one slice of tomato. Repeat the process and stack on top. Use the last piece of toast as the lid. Cut into triangles and enjoy.

Smoked salmon sub (but not as you know it)

This bread-free option probably goes against the grain (no pun intended) and the spirit of National Sandwich Day, but it’s healthy and tasty – and not everyone loves bread.

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1 x cucumber
  • Heaped spoonful of cream cheese
  • Heaped spoonful of chopped red onion
  • Teaspoon of freshly chopped dill
  • 50g – 100g John Ross Jr Smoked Salmon (depending on the size of your cucumber!)

 

Method

Peel the cucumber and lose the ends by cutting them off. Cut the cucumber in half – lengthways – and scoop out most of the cucumber’s inner flesh to make room for the filling. Mix the cheese, dill and onion in a bowl before spreading it on each side of the hollowed out cucumber. Lay as much smoked salmon as you can on one of the sides and then sandwich the smoked salmon in using the other half of the cucumber.

 

3. Smoked salmon sandwiches with curried almonds

This is without doubt the most interesting smoked salmon sandwich recipe we came across. And whilst we haven’t tried it, we couldn’t overlook a recipe that included the words ‘smoked salmon’ and ‘curried’ in the same sentence!

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 x teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 4 x slices of fresh, wholemeal bread
  • 1/3 cup of sliced, unblanched almonds
  • ½ x teaspoon curry powder
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • 100g pack of John Ross Jr
  • 2 radishes, thickly sliced
  • 1/2 Granny Smith apple, chopped into slices

Method 

Heat the oil in a pain, add the almonds and cook until golden. Coat the almonds in the curry powder and stir until well covered. Take off the heat and leave to cool. Once cool, stir in the yoghurt and season to taste. Spread the mixture over the bread, share the smoked salmon amongst the two sandwiches and top with the apple and radish. Serve when ready.
