  1. Carefully slice each croissant in half horizontally, ensuring not to tear them apart.
  2. On the bottom half of each croissant, lay a generous amount of smoked salmon. The rich, smoky flavour of the salmon pairs beautifully with the buttery croissant.
  3. Add a handful of fresh rocket leaves on top of the salmon. The peppery taste of the rocket adds a fresh contrast to the richness of the other ingredients.
  4. Dollop a tablespoon of crème fraîche on top of the rocket. Its subtle tanginess will complement the salmon wonderfully.
  5. If using, sprinkle some capers over the crème fraîche for an extra burst of flavour.
  6. Garnish with fresh dill, adding a touch of elegance and fragrance to the dish.
  7. Close the croissants with their tops, and serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side. Encourage your mom to squeeze the lemon over her croissant for a bright, citrusy zing.
  8. Season with freshly cracked black pepper according to taste.
