Good ole @jlsplatts mentioned on my last post about my eggs benny that he would add Salmon to his. " I nice chunk under the egg and some small flakes of salmon sprinkled over the top... :drool:drool….." Why yes, that did make me drool. I love Salmon. So of course my next #fff post had to be with Salmon.
Here she is...
And how we got there:
Bagel - toasted or not toasted, your choice. I go toasted, the wife went non.
Next up you add your cream cheese. You could do any flavor, but for this I think that plain is definitely best. Strawberry and others like that would be pretty weird tasting I would bet, but who knows?! It could turn out to be one of those weird combinations that taste realllllyyyy good.
Now, right at this step, you would probably see a nice big fat slab of tomato thrown down on top of that cream cheese. But not here. Not now, not nev'uh. I don't do a tomato. Raw, anyway. Give me ketchup, pasta sauce, pizza, diced and cooked, but not raw. So we go straight to the crisp and cool cucumber.
You can cut your onion however you prefer, but I like this way because it creates little caverns for the next ingredient to hold in place.
You know I'm talkin' bout capers! "Get the capers, get the capers"
Lastly, lay that Salmon on nice and thick. Any smoked Salmon will do. I tried a new brand from Trader Joe's that had a nice pepper seasoning on it. Suffice to say it was all gone within 2 days. Salmon doesn't last long in my house.
Happy Friday y'all!!! Any of you ever tried a lox bagel before?
