Smoked Salmon Bagel

My family loves salmon any way they can get it–raw, cooked, or smoked. I ran across some Nova cold-smoked salmon recently and decided to make some open-faced smoked salmon bagels with it. I slathered the toasted bagel halves with Boursin garlic herb cheese then layered the top with a few thin slices of the smoked salmon followed by slices of red onion, a few capers, fresh dill sprigs, lots of black pepper, and a big squeeze of fresh lemon juice. These open-faced sandwiches were a quick and easy meal to throw together and a big hit with my family.

How to Make a Smoked Salmon Bagel

Toast the bagel then spread a layer of Boursin garlic herb cheese on top of each toasted bagel half.

Next, layer a few very thin slices of smoked salmon on top of the cheese. Finish with a few slices of red onion, some capers, fresh dill sprigs, and lots of freshly cracked black pepper, to taste.

Serve immediately with fresh lemon wedges on the side. Enjoy.

  1. This creation looks absolutely perfect and as a fan of bagels, cream cheese and salmon, I know I would love your kicked up version – I’m a fan of every ingredient.

  2. I grew up in South Florida and a good bagel with smoked salmon was divine. This one looks fantastic. Boursin cheese is a great way to really pack flavor.
    Thanks for sharing.
