An indulgence for when you're feeling particularly deserving.
Salt and a little crunch is just what smoked salmon needs.
You can cook this, largely unattended, for less-special occasions too, like your regular-old weeknight dinners.
A lazy-person's gin spritz—and they were pretty damn easy to begin with.
