Smoked Salmon Crème Fraîche Tart With a Cornmeal Millet Crust From 'Whole-Grain Mornings'

Most of use know that salmon, cream cheese, and capers is a killer combination layered atop a bagel. But those flavors aren't necessarily tied to a bagel shop. Filling a buttery cornmeal and millet tart crust with a tangy crème fraîche custard, slices of salmon, flecks of dill, and a handful of salty capers, as Megan Gordon does in Whole-Grain Mornings, is just as grand of an idea.

Richard Blais's Barely Smoked Salmon with Pumpernickel-Avocado-Egg Salsa and 'Everything Bagel' Vinaigrette

Blais's Barely Smoked Salmon with Pumpernickel-Avocado-Egg Salsa and "Everything Bagel" Vinaigrette takes a deli staple, bagel and lox, and upends its style in a decidedly refined form. The anchor is a small fillet of salmon, smoked for only five minutes. This leaves the fish almost raw with a faint whiff of smoke. The bagel appears crumbled and crunchy in a "salsa" like assemblage with avocado and peeled cherry tomatoes. Capers, red onion, and egg also show up, along with the "everything bagel" seeds and spices present in the vinaigrette. It makes for a beautiful plate, unfamiliar in appearance, but comforting in flavor. More

Beet Blinis with Salmon Marinated in Star Anise Syrup from 'Home Made Winter'

Smoked Salmon Sandwiches with Curried Almonds

This recipe from Food & Wine uses the smoked salmon in a sandwich featuring apple, radish, and almonds. The apple and radish are simply sliced and tossed on, but the almonds are toasted for a few minutes, before being sprinkled with curry powder. They're then tossed in a bowl, allowed to cool for a few minutes, and finally mixed with yogurt. The spread provides an interesting base for this surprisingly crunchy sandwich. More

Cook the Book: Black Olive Mini Blinis with Pink Mascarpone, Salmon, and Preserved Beet

Keeping with the DIY theme of Home Made these Black Olive Mini Blinis with Pink Mascarpone, Salmon, and Preserved Beet embrace two of van Boven's made from scratch techniques: preserving and working with yeasted doughs.

Dinner Tonight: Smoked Salmon with Dill Crème Fraiche on Pretzel Bun

What do you think of pretzel buns? I've been seeing them pop up on burgers from time to time, but I think they also work wonders for other sandwiches. Take this recipe, which was inspired by one of my favorite local sandwich shops, Hannah's Bretzel in Chicago. While I wasn't able to quite nail the perfection of their sandwiches—no doubt due to not having their freshly made bread—it definitely worked. More
