This open-faced sandwich is similar to what the Danish call smørrebrød. Slices of dense pumpernickel bread and French baguette are topped with a tangy cream cheese mixture, thin slices of smoked salmon and finished with a punchy relish. They're special enough to serve when friends come round and pair perfectly with Champagne or Chenin Blanc.

Spicy citrus mojo sauce takes avocado toast from bland to brilliant. The poached eggs add an extra level of creaminess while the cilantro adds a fresh, earthy flavor.
