Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp thick Greek yogurt

For the smoked mackerel open-facers

  • 50g skinless smoked mackerel , flaked into 16 pieces
  • ½ small red onion , thinly sliced
  • sprigs of fresh dill

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the yogurt and mustard together, then spread over the bread and top with the beetroot slices, overlapping them to make an even base.

  • STEP 2

    For the pastrami tartines, cover the beetroot completely with the pastrami slices, then cut each into six fingers and top each one with a sliver of gherkin.
