Hang on to any leftover cheese sauce from this recipe and add it to mashed potatoes later in the week.

In Denmark, delicacies such as langoustine, wild salmon, seaweed, foraged berries and musk ox are popular restaurant menu items, and young Danish chefs have breathed new life into the famous open sandwich, Smørrebrød, which dates back to the 19th century. These heaped rye bread treats were popular with everyone from farmers and factory workers to the lavish urban elite, one hundred years ago
Calling on my New Orleans background for inspiration, I decided to blacken the salmon, and whipped up a blue cheese cream sauce to top it with. The fish remains moist and flavorful, and the blue cheese makes this dish sublime. I used the leftover cream sauce in house-made mashed potatoes the following day. It was the perfect side to go with our steak.Print
