Smoked Salmon Breakfast Wrap


Traditional Smoked Salmon Breakfast Sandwich


Smoked Salmon used to be somewhat of a delicacy and a little bit of a mystery.  Although smoked salmon originally comes from the Nordic countries, lox and bagels were not well known outside of the Jewish communities. But in the Northeast, especially New York, delis began serving Lox and Bagels as a “Sunday morning treat.” 


Bagels became so amazingly popular, they quickly moved into the mainstream.


A traditional bagel with lox is always anchored with cream cheese, the smoked salmon and then the options open up. They are often a combination of these:


lox and cream cheese bagel
Bagel and a Schmear


Salmon Today


Since salmon has become one of the most popular fish dishes in America, smoked salmon has been riding its coattails. If I can get good quality smoked salmon in my rural southern town of 8,000 (2,000 of those are guests of the local penitentiary outside of town) then you KNOW it’s in the mainstream.


Since I can buy it whenever I want, I really enjoy using it in as many dishes as I can.


As much as I love the traditional bagel sandwich, I like would like to be able to have a little less bread and maybe a few more healthy whole foods. With the total redo and repurposing movement, I thought it might be fun to upscale the traditional bagel.


The Smoked Salmon Breakfast Sandwich


In addition to the original ingredients, I have added a spinach/flax wrap, fresh spinach leaves, a little green onion for extra flavor. You could easily add avocado, tomato, bean sprouts or any other extras you like.
