Recipe For Salmon Sandwiches With Wasabi Cream Cheese

'Wich of the Week: Smoked Salmon With Wasabi Cream Cheese

I don't often buy German-style dark rye bread, but when I spotted some at Trader Joe's the other day, I knew it would be perfect for the Swedish-inspired salmon sandwiches I'd been wanting to make. I ditched the original recipe's finger-sandwich suggestion and made full-size but dainty sandwiches instead. Layering smoked fish on dark bread definitely has a Scandinavian feel, but the wasabi cream cheese adds an eye-opening Japanese kick.The nutty bread combined with velvety fish, creamy avocado, and even creamier spread makes for a cold sandwich that's hearty enough for dinnertime. My only complaint was that the wasabi — which I love — was too subtle. Next time, I'd mix in more, and if you like the tingly mustard, I suggest you do the same. To get the easy recipe,

Recipe For Smoked Salmon Sandwiches With Avocado and Wasabi Cream Cheese

Ingredients

1 tablespoon wasabi powder
2 teaspoons water
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
8 slices German-style rye bread
1 ripe Hass avocado
1/2 lemon
8 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Mix wasabi powder and 2 teaspoons water in medium bowl to form paste. Add cream cheese and stir with a rubber spatula until well combined.
  2. Place all bread slices on work surface. Spread each slice with a thin, even layer of the cream cheese.
  3. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise and twist the 2 halves apart and remove the pit. Use a spoon to remove the avocado flesh from one half. Slice the each half into 1/8-inch slices. Place the avocado slices in a bowl and squeeze juice from 1/2 lemon over avocado slices and toss gently.
  4. Cover each bread slice with a single layer of salmon, followed by a layer of avocado slices.
  5. Top each sandwich with remaining slice of bread.

Makes 4 sandwiches.

I love the taste of wasabi, so this sandwich looks totally good to me. I am sure that the dark bread holds up well with the other strong tastes. I would encourage people to keep trying things they do not like because taste for a certain food can change over the years. Eat your avocado!

Looks yum, but is the German style rye bread a deal breaker?

Yum, I wish I knew where you lived (in a not creepy stalkerish type of way) because I am such a foodie but my husband will very rarely stray from meat and potatoes. It's insane the things he won't eat. It's very rare that I am able to try new and adventurous things like I would love to, because he won't eat any of it. I would love to dine with you for a day, lol.
