At Northern Waters Restaurant in Duluth, these open-face sandwiches are assembled in the kitchen, but you can array the components as a make-your-own appetizer or light brunch dish. Improvise with thinly sliced radish or by offering RyKrisp crackers in addition to bread.



Sandwich Recipe:


  • For mustard sauce: Whisk together oil, mustard, honey, vinegar and dried dill weed.

  • Build sandwiches by spreading bread with butter, then layering cucumber, gravlax, egg, mustard sauce, capers, onion and fresh dill weed. (Extra sauce keeps well in the refrigerator.)

*Shopping tip

Gravlax is a type of cured salmon that’s hard to find in stores, but if you’re in the mood for a kitchen adventure, recipes to make it yourself abound online. Lox is a readily available substitute.
