- When selecting the sourdough bread, look for a loaf that is fresh and has a good flavor.
- When zesting the lemon, make sure to only grate the yellow part of the skin, avoiding the white pith underneath.
- Instead of rye sourdough bread, use whole wheat bread. The benefit of this substitution is that it adds more fiber to the dish, making it a healthier option.
- Instead of Parmesan cheese, use feta cheese. The benefit of this substitution is that it adds a different flavor profile to the dish, making it more interesting and flavorful.
Vegetarian Option Replace smoked salmon with grilled halloumi cheese and sour cream with Greek yogurt.
