Featured Recipe: Nordic-Style Salmon on Rye Toast

It turns out that a Nordic diet may be a tasty way to help you lose weight, keep it off, and enjoy a long and healthy life. A trio of researchers has come out with a new book, The Nordic Way, and they’re sharing three delicious recipes with Fitbit readers. Throw together a quick and nutritious lunch, by toasting dark rye bread and topping it with superfood salmon.

Open-Faced Sandwich with Salmon, Ginger & Lime

If you can’t be certain of the freshness of your salmon, substitute an equal amount of cured salmon, like gravlax or a mild Norwegian smoked salmon. It will be just as delicious.

4 ounces sushi-grade salmon fillet, thinly sliced across the grain
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 slice whole-grain rye bread or whole rye pumpernickel bread, toasted
3 bitter lettuce leaves, such as radicchio
1 large egg, hard-boiled and cut in half
Fresh dill sprigs, for serving

Place the salmon on a plate. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the ginger, lime zest, and lime juice.

Build your sandwich with the rye bread on the bottom, then the salmon, lettuce, egg, and dill on top.
