    Salmon Bagel

    Serves: 4
    Total Time: 10 min


    • 4 Bagels, halved (see notes)
    • 200 grams Smoked Salmon Slices
    • 200 grams Cream Cheese
    • 2 small/medium Avocados, peeled, stoned and sliced into thin strips
    • 1 Lemon
    • 1 tbsp finely diced Fresh Parsley
    • 1 tbsp finely diced Fresh Chives
    • 4 tsp Capers
    • Fresh Dill, to serve (see notes)
    • Cracked Black Pepper, to taste



    In a small mixing bowl, combine 7oz/200 grams of cream cheese, 1 tbsp finely diced chives and parsley, a hefty pinch of cracked black pepper (to taste) and the zest of half a lemon. Alternatively, if you don't have a zester or want a smoother cream cheese you can squeeze in lemon juice (to taste).


    Evenly distribute fillings and stack in the following order: bottom bagel slice, herb cream cheese, avocado, salmon, capers, a pinch of dill then finish with top bagel slice. I also like to squeeze a little lemon juice on the salmon, but this is optional.
