Smoked Salmon & Sautéed Kale Bagel

February 10 2023

This week's new recipe is a unique twist on a traditional smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel. I've added sautéed kale to the mix, creating a perfect blend of flavours and textures that can only be described as a love child of Eggs Florentine and a smoked salmon bagel.

The smoky salmon makes the perfect match with the seasoned kale, which is cooked to a beautifully vibrant green hue. Served on a toasted bagel and topped with a generous dollop of cream cheese, this dish is rounded out with salty pops of capers. Not only is it delicious, but it's also a nutritious option for breakfast or lunch.

This recipe is also simple to prepare and can be customised to your preference. Substitute flaked hot smoked salmon or trout for a different flavour profile. Fresh dill and thinly sliced red onion can also be added in place of the chives.
