    This came out really delicious. I omitted the salt. Loved the subtle horseradish flavor, it gave it a whole new dimension.

    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.

    Yum indeed :) These are so easy and so delicious. I used my latest attempt to making a gluten free baguette which didn't turn out well as baguette but made nice crostini after toasting the slices in the oven. For the dill weed I used dry dill because I found that I had forgotten to buy fresh one. Next time I'll use the fresh one! This was a very nice dinner with some salad. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for Sweet December Game.

    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.

Hello! I have a wonderful husband and two fantastic kids. I love to read, have fun with family and friends, stay active with: running; soccer; golf; biking; hiking; and gardening. I love to travel. I'm looking forward to more international travel someday. Cooking has become a passion for me. I love to read cookbooks, watch the Food Network, and try new recipes. I have way too many cookbooks! A few of my favorites are: Barefoot Contessa (any - but especially 'Family Style'),Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meals 2, Roasting by Barbara Kafka, Beyond Parsley & The Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook. I try to carefully choose recipes that I think my family will enjoy, which is why most of my ratings are 3-5 stars. Happy cooking!
