Best Ways to Eat Smoked Salmon

Just had a load of smoked salmon on Breton sesame crackers with a sauce of sour cream and fresh dill. It was fine. Quite good actually. But I'm looking for ideas to zest up smoked salmon.
So, any ideas?
cream cheese, sliced cukes, capers, sliced hardboiled egg, lemon zest. any combination.
homemade cream cheese is easy and worth the effort.
I prefer creme fraiche to cream cheese, capers, minced red onion, a drop or two of lemon juice. While (only) NY bagels are terrific, I actually prefer it on a very crispy cracker like, perhaps, melba toast.
I just made a layered smoked salmon spread that was out of this world fantastic - I could have eaten the entire thing - if you go to my photos, it's one of the last ones that I posted, I can't seem to get this picture on this thread though.
I mixed cream cheese with lemon juice and dill, then put the first layer of cheese in the bottom of a small bowl that I lined with saran wrap. the next layer was capers, mixed with diced red onion, more dill and more lemon juice, then another layer of that cream cheese, then a layer of chopped smoked salmon, then anothe layer of the cheese. put in fridge, when ready - turn the bowl over on a plate using the saran wrap to help ease it out of the bowl. Oh so good! But then again, I love salmon any which way.
It's great in a pasta dish with cream cheese which melts.
