Irish Smoked Salmon Grilled Cheese

Irish Smoked Salmon Grilled Cheese

salmonOkay, it’s a bit decadent, but so delicious!

  • 6 oz smoked salmon, thinly sliced or flaked.  (I love the salmon from the Aurora based Honey Smoked Fish Co, but any brand will do)
  • 6 oz cream cheese, room temp, you could also use gruyere, swiss or gouda
  • 1 tsp chopped capers
  • 2 tsp red onion, chopped small
  • 8 pieces bread of choice (rye, pumpernickel, sourdough, whatever you like)
  • Butter

Mash together the softened cream cheese, capers and onion with a fork. Butter bread slices and top 4 pieces with the cream cheese mixture, evenly divided. Top with smoked salmon and cover with the remaining slices of bread. Melt 1 tbs of butter in a nonstick skillet or sauté pan. Put the sandwiches in, cover and heat over low heat. Turn when brown and golden on the bottom side, about 4 – 5 minutes. Brown on the other side, plate and enjoy with some pickles and chips.

*You could also add some arugula or sliced tomatoes to the sandwich.
