  • 1 dozen bagels assorted (go heavy on everything bagels)
  • ½ lb scallion cream cheese
  • ½ lb plain cream cheese
  • 2.5 -3 lbs of smoked fish figure about ¼ lb/person, though some may want more or less; I like an assortment of lox, nova, sable, etc.
  • 1 lb of smoked seafood salad such as whitefish, salmon, or tuna (assorted is better!)
  • 1/2 lb thinly sliced muenster cheese or other cheese
  • 2-3 vine ripe tomatoes thinly sliced
  • 1 large red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 4 oz jar of capers, drained
  • fresh dill or other greens for serving


  • Slice bagels in half, then place on a platter or in a basket.
  • Place cream cheese, seafood salads, and capers in small bowls, then arrange on a large cutting board or serving platter.
  • Arrange the remaining ingredients, making sure to spread the ingredients around the board so everyone can reach, regardless of whether they're sitting!
  • Let guests assemble bagel sandwiches as desired.
