This delicious, visual loaf is great for entertaining guests and also for using up your leftover smoked salmon. The classic combination of salmon with refreshing cucumber, zingy lemon, fragrant herbs and tangy cream cheese never fails to impress.     

Using a peeler slice the cucumber thinly into ribbons. Layer over kitchen towel to draw out a little moisture.

In a bowl mix the butter with the dill and 2 tbsp parsley then season with a little salt & freshly ground black pepper. Spread over one side of each rye bread slice.

Place on slice of rye bread on a plate and top with a few slices of salmon, squeeze over a little lemon juice and top with a few slices of cucumber.

Mix the cream cheese and lemon zest together. Spread the other side of the remaining rye breads with the cream cheese mixture and place one on top of the cucumber.

Repeat this until all the rye bread is gone. Spread the top with the remaining cream cheese mixture. Top with lemon zest & parsley and slice gently with a bread knife to serve.


Make sure you place your salmon and cucumber right up to the edges so you can make a feature out of the sides of the loaf.
