Smoked Salmon Smorrebrod Recipe – Denmark

Smorrebrod Recipe

Believed to be invented in the 19th century, Smorrebrod (pronounced Smuhr–bruth), this popular Danish snack translates to an open-face sandwich made with buttered rye bread and usually topped with smoked salmon or roast meat (especially when it is consumed during the holidays)

Where did it come from? Denmark, but widely consumed in all Scandinavian countries

Perfect for – a light lunch, an evening snack, a dinner appetizer, or, when cut into smaller squares, an impressive hors d’oeuvre. Also, kids will love these in their lunchboxes.

Prep + Cooking time: 30 minutes. But if you make the dressing the night before, then it should take about 10 mins to assemble.
