My daughter loves smoked salmon and I love sailing, so we decided to make these cute sailing boats. The sails are made of smoked salmon and the hull of naan bread spread with spinach and ricotta mousse.
I started sailing when I was still at school, first on the lake, then on the sea. I love this feeling of the wing blowing into your face, the sails over your head and the water splashing around. I have never taken my daughter sailing yet, but I would love to try it this summer. She loves swimming, still learning tough, so I hope she will like sailing as well. We talked a lot about that while making these delicious little sandwiches and she said she would try it only with mummy:) How sweet!
1 naan round bread
50g/1.8ounce of fresh spinach
1 tablespoon of ricotta
12 slices of smoked salmon
salt, paper, garlic, oil
Did you know that salmon flesh is generally orange to red as a results of carotenoid pigments from eating krill and other tiny shellfish?
Step1 Fold each piece of smoked salmon and hold it with a toothpick. Prepare as many as you would need - one for each piece of bread.
Step2 Prepare the naan bread following the instructions on the package you bought. I spread mine with a bit of water and placed it in the preheated oven for 5 min. The bread was tender and warm, perfect! When your bread is ready, cut it in triangle shapes. I had a round naan bread so I cut it in 3 parts first. Then I cut each part in half and then, in diagonal. Each triangle can be different, this way each sailing boat will be unique!
Step3 Fry spinach with oil and smashed garlic, until tender. Remove excess juice, if any and mix it with ricotta cheese to obtain a mousse texture.
Step4 Spread the spinach and ricotta mousse onto the bread. Mount the smoked salmon onto each piece of bread to make cute sailing boats. Enjoy!
