Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Sandwich

Here is another great sandwich recipe. It comes from the Greek Gods according to Yeero Yeero's menu. They call it the Maxim Sandwich. I call it amazing! It is a warm roll full of cool cream cheese, capers, salmon, onion, lettuce and tomato. They are the only Greek restaurant left that offers this delicious sandwich. I first tried this sandwich years ago at another restaurant that has since closed. When I saw it on the Yeero Yeero menu I was thrilled! It is simple enough to make at home too. The secret here is grilling the roll and marinating the onions. Grilling the roll toasts the bread and makes it easier to spread the cream cheese. Marinating the onions takes a little of the bite out of them. The little bit of vinegar also supports the tangy capers. I just love the combination. It is creamy, tangy, smoky and fresh. A really delicious light sandwich!

Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Sandwich
Serves 1


1 Tbsp onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp white vinegar
6” poboy, sub or hoagie roll
2 tsp light butter
3 Tbsp light cream cheese
1 tsp capers
1.5 oz smoked salmon
1/4 cup shredded lettuce
1 tomato slice, cut in half
Salt and pepper, to taste


Place onion in a small bowl and drizzle with vinegar, set aside. Slice open roll into two equal slices leaving one side attached. Butter the inside or cut side of the roll. Place face down in a medium high skillet. Grill until golden brown and remove from the skillet. Remove onion from vinegar and drain on a paper towel. Spread cream cheese on the bottom half of the roll. Layer ingredients on top of cream cheese in the following order; capers, smoked salmon, onions, lettuce, and tomato. Season tomato with salt and pepper. Close the sandwich with top half of roll, slice in half and serve!

Note: I can make three sandwiches from a 4 oz package of smoked salmon.
