Smoked Trout, Radish and Sprout SmØrrebrØd

In Denmark, these open-face sandwiches are wildly popular and eaten everywhere. While SmØr may mean butter, the base of the sandwiches often use other ingredients as well. While the Danes eat these hearty sandwiches with a knife and fork, they would also be delicious served in bite-size squares or rounds.
