A very simple recipe with gourmet taste! From Food and Wine Magazine. The flavors of the smoked salmon, Gruyere cheese and Dijon mustard complement eachother very nicely. I enjoy the hint of lemon, too. This makes a simple lunch special.
kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Heat up a panini press.
Spread the Dijon mustard over each of 4 slices of the brioche. Top each one with 1 slice of the Gruyere. Divide all of the smoked salmon and grated lemon zest among the 4 slices of brioche. Season lightly with the salt and pepper and cover with the remaining slices on Gruyere. Close the sandwiches and grill on the panini press for 2 to 3 minutes, until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted. Cut the panini in half and serve!
