This recipe takes more time than the other recipes, but it’s good for those who follow PALEO diet. It’s not a vegetarian dish, but you can easily modify it to be vegetarian.

Smoked Salmon Crispbread
This is a classic Norwegian dish! You can find the crisp breads in your local supermarket or if you have IKEA in your area, they also sell this crisp breads in their food section. For cheese part, my favorite is goat cheese, but you can use any soft cheese for that purpose. It’s better to use smoked salmon on top. It just takes couple of minutes to make this dish, but you can easily impress your guests if you serve it as an appetizer in your parties.
