I am not sure how I missed this recipe during the Quest, but now it has been made for the Sweet December Tag Game. This recipe would be welcomed into every Icelandic home & some version of it is often eaten for breakfast, lunch, afternoon coffee or starter dinner courses. I halved this recipe for 2 of us using individual baguette rolls & sliced them the same as you would baguette bread. The recipe was otherwise made as written except that I also added 2-3 sml pieces of very thinly-sliced red onion plus a few capers atop the crostini. Eaten as a starter snack before a leftover meal, DH & I were very happy. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us, Agent Special K.

I loved the horseradish bit of a kick in the cream cheese! Yum! I likes BK's idea of using cabiatta buns! Made for LBOB/Culinary Quest 2015

This was a wonderful birthday treat, I really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for sharing this quick and easy to make dish. Made exactly as written but I used minced lemongrass in place of the dill as I was out. The salmon was the star of the dish. I served it over a lightly toasted cabiatta bun. Can't wait to have this again. Made for Sweet December 2014.
