“I recently came up with this as part of trying to find dishes that had big taste in smaller portions. I live in AK and have a large amount of high grade smoked salmon products right here at my front door. I love smoked salmon but wanted to incorporate into more than chowder or over green salad. This is my spin on the usual Patty Melt.”
