Smoked Salmon Bagel

Apologies for not posting very much recently or this entire year actually. Life and work has seemingly got in the way of many things. Recently I’ve realised that I’ve been taking photos of everything else other than food, and my food blog list in Feedly has been much neglected. I guess I have to chalk it up to a bit of burnout really. Call it the late-20s, OMG, I’m almost 30 blues where finding the motivation even for what was an absolutely passionate hobby a few months ago is becoming increasingly like trying to find El Dorado.

Anyway, I have been indulging in more of the carefree and simple things in life… cream cheese, movies on the weekends and just daydreaming occasionally, which is a luxury I really can’t afford but probably keeps me sane. But here…enjoy this delicious, easy and simple breakfast. It’s hard to find good traditional bagels here in Australia, but I found a bagel stall at a local organic market and I just couldn’t resist getting one with ALL the seeds.

Smoked Salmon Bagel (For 1)

1 bagel
Cream Cheese (I used Philly)
2 teaspoons capers (drained)
few slices of good quality smoked salmon or gravlax
Cracked black pepper and salt flakes

Cut the bagel in half. Spread a thick layer of cream cheese, add salt and pepper to taste,  then layer the salmon, top with capers and the top half of the bagel. Cut in half! Consume.
