salmon tramezzini

Ok, I never really said I would stop posting salmon recipes :D. I had this queued weeks ago, right after the Wraps around the world post because I was supposed to include this then.

Tramezzini (singular: tramezzino, from tramezzo meaning “in between”) are thin, randless Italian bread eaten as antipasto or snacks. Tramezzini are abundant in Venice and are served in interesting fillings/spread combination.

For this dish I used:

1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pinch salt
1 x black pepper freshly ground, to taste
8 thin slices bread, italian
6 ounces smoked salmon or lox
1/2 each cucumber peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup watercress or basil leaves, or mixed baby lettuces


1. Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and several grindings black pepper.

2. Lay out 4 slices of the bread and brush lightly with some of the dressing. Top with the smoked salmon, cucumber and greens. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and cover with the remaining slices bread. Press down lightly and roll (or cut into halves). Serve.
