Herby Cream Cheese & Salmon Bagel
1. Finely chop the dill and parsley and add to a mixing bowl with the cream cheese, lemon zest and lemon juice. Mix with a hand mixer on high or with a whisk until the cream cheese is light and fluffy and everything is incorporated. Season to taste with salt & black pepper and add more lemon juice if needed.
2. To serve, lightly toast the bagels and spread with a generous amount of the herby cream cheese. Top each bagel half with 50g of salmon, a few slices of the pickled red onions and a sprinkle of capers. Garnish with extra fresh dill.
Pink Pickled Onions
1. Whisk vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl until everything is well combined, and the sugar has dissolved.
2. Place onion in medium bowl or jar and pour over the vinegar mix and leave to sit for 1 hour at room temperature or cover and place in the fridge for up to 1 week.
