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.



  1. In a bowl, combine the canned salmon, smoked salmon, yogurt, oil, capers and dill. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place a layer of beets on each slice of bread. Top with the salmon mixture, then slices of cucumber. Serve with lemon wedges on the side. Delicious served with a green salad or crudités.


To save time, we used store-bought cooked beets and ready-to-eat boneless, skinless canned salmon.
