Smoked Salmon Grilled Cheese Sandwich


    Serves 4


    Assertive mustard, smoked salmon and hearty rye bread team up to create an all-grown-up grilled cheese sandwich with sophisticated flair. If desired, low-salt Swiss cheese can replace Gruyère if you’re trying to limit your sodium intake. For more nutritional bang, look for rye bread that lists whole rye flour as the first ingredient instead of wheat flour.

    8 thin slices dark rye bread
    1 1/2 Tbsp (30 ml) grainy or creamy Dijon mustard
    4 oz (115 g) smoked salmon
    1 cup (250 ml) sliced roasted capsicum
    1 cup (250 ml) grated Gruyère cheese
    1 cup (250 ml) rocket
    1 1/2 Tbsp (30 ml) unsalted butter, room temperature

    Heat cast iron pan over medium heat.

    While pan is heating, arrange sandwiches. Lay out 8 slices of rye bread and spread each with an equal amount of mustard. Top 4 slices with smoked salmon, roasted pepper, cheese and rocket. Place remaining bread slices on top, mustard side down and butter tops with half the butter.

    Place sandwiches in pan, in batches if necessary, butter side down. Cook until bottom sides of bread are toasted. Spread remaining butter on top side of the sandwiches, flip over and press down on them with spatula. Continue cooking until both sides are toasted.

    To serve, slice grilled sandwiches in half.
