SMOKED SALMON AND EGGPLANT CROSTINI WITH HORSE RADISH TOPPING

Eggplant

I’m quite surprised myself but here we are, a recipe from my temporary kitchen in Sweden! I wanted to make something like Sweden meets Italy and this is what came out of that. I really love horseradish, or pepparrot/pepper root as it is called in Swedish, it has a lovely peppery taste and then there is that incredible explosion in the nose, just like wasabi , that surprises me every time – what more can you ask from food than that? And it goes so well with smoked salmon. Fried eggplant is also a favourite of mine and I think that its sweetness goes very well with the smoky saltiness of the salmon. Try it!
