Picture of Smoked Salmon Tea Sandwiches Recipe 

Ingredients

Herb butter:

  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced scallions (white and green parts)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemonjuice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Sandwiches:

nocoupons

  • 1 loaf dense 7-grain or health bread, unsliced
  • 8 slices smoked salmon

Directions

For the herb butter, combine all the butter ingredients in a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat until mixed, but do not whip.

 For the sandwiches, have the store slice the bread lengthwise on a meat slicer into 1/4-inch-thick slices. (If that isn’t possible, you can slice it crosswise with a very sharp knife.)

 Lay out 8 slices of bread and spread them all with a thin layer of herb butter. Place smoked salmon on 4 of the slices. Top with the other 4 slices of bread, butter side down. Place the sandwiches on a baking sheet and wrap with plastic. Refrigerate until the butter is very cold. Place the sandwiches on a cutting board. With a very sharp knife, cut off the crusts, cut each large sandwich in half crosswise, and then cut each half diagonally twice to make a total of 8 small triangles. (If the bread was cut crosswise, follow the assembly directions, then cut off the crusts and cut diagonally, twice, to make 4 small triangles.) Serve chilled.
