Okay, I didn’t really cook anything here. To be frank, I assembled. But I swear you’re going to love this toast.
I have loved this toast ever since I was young. My aunt used to take me and my sister on a drive to the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto to buy smoked salmon. We would then come back home and she would give a blind eye to my little hands reaching up and taking pieces of salmon.
She makes hers on toasted french baguette slices as a party appetizer. As I grew older, I started to prefer savoury foods for breakfast and this toast is one of my absolute favourites. I experiment with different bread types but I always go back to multigrain.
I only had chives on hand but I usually use dill as it pairs perfectly with salmon. Try different herbs with yours and let me know how it goes!
