Polar bread

Polar bread , also known as Tunnbröd is a flat Swedish bread that once cooked in a pan is best served with smoked salmon and Greek yoghurt based sauce.  It is often served in France as a base of chicken sandwich  or smoked salmon , but it is also good accompanied with crab and prawns. Also this is a flat bread i cooked mine as English muffin shape , so it is slightly larger than original polar bread.
