Ingredients per portion:
2 slices buttered rye bread, or other brown bread
3.5 oz (100 g) smoked salmon
1 1/3 cup (150g) heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp (25 ml) whiskey
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 oz (50 g) smoked salmon fillets, cut into very thin slices
1 lemon wedge
Chop the smoked salmon finely, and stir-in 2/3 cup heavy cream to get almost even consistency.
Whip with the whiskey, 1/4 tsp white pepper, and nutmeg.
Place in a refrigerator to cool.
Whip the 2/3 cup heavy cream, then add the chilled mixture a little at a time continuing whipping.
Spread the rye buttered bread slices with the mix, then cover evenly with very thin slices of smoked salmon.
Sprinkle every slice with the ground white pepper.
Make a sandwich with the bread on top, then press slices, and remove the crusts.
Cover the sandwiches with a clean, lightly wet cloth, and chill.
Serve cold with a wedge of lemon.
Note: This is one of a Ritz's special high tea sandwiches.
