Smoked Salmon Open Faced

Smoked Salmon Open Faced

There's nothing more satisfying that a really delicious lunch that comes together in about 5 minutes flat! OK 10 minutes if you count the time it takes to toast your bread! I've included this "non-recipe" recipe here just because it's one of my absolute favorites for lunch in a pinch! I usually keep a package of smoked salmon in the fridge and make variations off this recipe depending on what I have on hand. If you don't have Aleppo pepper flakes on hand, then try this with Everything Bagel seasoning. In fact, this tastes great with both!
