Treat your guests to traditional Italian finger sandwiches layered with our Gravlax smoked salmon, fennel, cheese and chili paste.
1⁄2 Bulb of fennel (about 5 oz, thinly sliced, reserve fronds)
1⁄2 Lemon (juiced, about 1-2 tablespoons)
1 Loaf of fluffy white bread
1 8 oz ball of mozzarella (sliced)
1 ounce Calabrian chili paste (store bought, or your favorite kind of chili spread)
Slice fennel and toss with lemon juice.
Lay 4-6 slices of bread on a cutting board.
Layer as follows: fennel, gravlax, mozzarella, chili spread. Ingredients will hang off the edge. Place a second piece of bread on top and press the sandwich down to compact the layers. Trim off crusts and cut each sandwich into four triangles by slicing across the diagonals. Garnish with fennel fronds.
