Salmon and Dill Danish Open-Faced Sandwiches (Smørrebrød)

Salmon and Dill Danish Open-Faced Sandwiches (Smørrebrød)

  • Preparation 15 min
  • Servings 4

A no-frills Friday night gets extra finesse with open-faced sandwiches inspired by Danish tartines, known as smørrebrød. Sitting pretty in pink on a cool slab of slate, they’re the anchor for a casual evening meal. Salmon, both smoked and canned, is set off with rye bread, beets, cucumbers and dill. Just uncork a bottle of white, and things will go swimmingly.
