Recipe: Smoked salmon, smoked cheese and fennel at Gastro.dk

smoked salmon open sandwich restaurant kronborg lunch

The raw marinated salmon adds acidity and a crispy crunch as contrast to the juicy, soft salmon and the crème of smoked cheese. You find the recipe below.

We served the smoked salmon with crème of smoked cheese and raw marinated fennel for our Nordic summer-platter for the food festival Copenhagen Cooking 2013. The salmon became so popular that we put it on our blackboard and serve it as part of our Autumn platter.
Should you want to try your hand at making the popular sandwich at home you find the recipe at Gastro.dk (sorry, in Danish only) or below (in English).
If you enjoy eating more than cooking we suggest you try the salmon at a cosy lunch at Restaurant Kronborg.
