Mondays are usually good. Having had time at the weekend, I've generally managed to make something satisfying and nutritious to take with me on Monday morning. Fridays are the best though, as I work from home, which means that I can actually use some kitchen appliances to prepare myself something a little more... interesting. It still has to be speedy, of course. I am conscious that when working at home, I must be at my desk as much as possible and not taking advantage of the flexible arrangement I have been lucky enough to get.
Last Friday, I decided to make this tasty snack combining hot smoked salmon and cheese on toast. It was delicious, quick, easy and nutritious.
I flaked the hot smoked salmon into a bowl and added some creme fraiche, horseradish, snipped chives, finely chopped spring onions and freshly ground pepper.
Feeling reckless, I then decided to throw in some chopped avocado. I then preheated the grill to high and lightly toasted some brown bread on each side. Once toasted, I piled the salmon mixture onto the toast and topped with freshly grated Cheddar cheese.
I then grilled on high until the cheese was nicely melted and served with a tastily-dressed salad. Very delicious and all completed in around ten minutes. Perfect!
This would probably be good with smoked mackerel too - I might even mix a little Dijon mustard into the cheese for an added kick.
