|native american smoked salmon|
THAT BEING SAID
I was racking my brain for a faster and different way to produce something similar but without having to cook the sushi rice and roll it which start to finish take more than a half hour and i thought about using the
LAVASH BREAD a Middle Eastern flat bread that i love and thought of 2 ways to make some quick variations of these ingredients.you see Lavash bread in circular form and in these rectangular forms which is ideal for these two ideas...a roll up wheels and a pizza!!
creme fraich (like a sour cream),red onions and chives, and your favorite, cold smoke and brined (and peppered if ya can find it!) salmon and some capers and rolling it up like a small thin roll, then you would use toothpicks to pin them down this way in one inch pieces and cut them so look like what is to the right (though this is not the pix...i didnt have the ingredients....and thats it!!!! i could produce 10 rolls (eight pieces per roll) in 10 minutes!
CHEVRE and i smash it all over the lavash bread and sprinkle with minced red onions and capers (optional, but essential for me!!) and put it either on a greased cookie sheet..you can fit 2 or maybe 3 pieces of bread on it...and put it in the oven for 5 minutes, take it out and get it off the cookie sheet fast so it doesnt turn into crackers! and top with your favorite brined cold smoked salmon (you can find it in most organic shops like Whole Foods) and cut into 2 halves and enjoy!!!! This goes to Jamie and her daughter Cassidy who love this .Cass would put smoked eel on hers too!!.her son Dakota never liked weird stuff like this and probably still doesn't huh girl?
There you have it, 2 really quick appetizers for all you's (for Fran!) Jewish Lox and Bagel lovers!!
A variation for me? i would top the pizza with some really nice basil ribbons and Prosciutto.
