12 slices whole-meal bread
2 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed and chopped coarsely
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon of lemon zest
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 cup sour cream
500g sliced smoked salmon
1- Combine capers, dill, zest, lemon juice, garlic and sour cream in a small bowl.
2- Spread each slice of bread with 1 tablespoon of sour cream mixture and cover with the slices of salmon. Continue alternating the layers with the remaining bread, sour cream mixture, and salmon slices, finishing with a slice of bread. You can make them 3 or 5 layers, but no more than this, the sandwiches will be very difficult to cut and handle.
3- Cover them with plastic food wrap and put them in the refrigerator for one hour.
4- Put the bread sandwiches onto a chopping board, using a knife cut off the crust of the bread and then cut the bread into squares or rectangles.
5- Top small sandwiches with little extra sour cream and dill, if desired.
1- These sandwiches keep well for 24 hours so you can make them ahead of time. They will not be soggy.
