This recipe for how to make smoked salmon sandwiches is simple and delicious. Whipped cream cheese, herbs, and smoked salmon are the perfect combo!

  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 Sandwich 1x


  • 2 Slices White Sandwich Bread or Rye Sandwich Bread
  • 1oz-2oz Whipped Cream Cheese,
  • 2-3 Slices Smoked Salmon- I like Scottish
  • Fresh Chives, finely chopped
  • Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and Black Pepper


  1. Take two slices of white bread and spread them both with cream cheese. I like to use whipped cream cheese but you can use block cream cheese that has been softened. 
  2. Layer the smoked salmon as thick as you like, I prefer 2-3 slices and sprinkle on salt and pepper then add chopped herbs. Use a serrated knife to cut the crusts off and slice the sandwich into three rectangles or slice the sandwich in a diagonal both ways to create 4 triangles. Serve immediately. 
  3. If preparing ahead of time place on a sheet pan and place a damp light tea towel or cheesecloth or paper towel on top of keeping the sandwiches from drying out.
