Weather you are hosting or attending a dinner party bringing this appetizer to the party will not stress you out and will impress everyone with the fancy look of these smoke salmon and cream cheese bites. We used mini toast as our crunchy element, you can find them at any market. In a large bowl we mixed creme fraiche, cream cheeses, lemon juice, lemon zest, dill and a pinch of black pepper mixed that all together. Then put the mix in a piping bag with a large star tip. We piped the cheese filling onto our mini toast. Next we sliced the salmon in small squarish sections, we took a long thin zest of lemon peel and sprig of dill then wrapped the salmon around it tightly. Next place the salmon twist on top of the cheese filling on the mini toast. Prepare right before serving.
This appetizer is perfect for any summertime gathering. We made it quite a few times this last summer. If you try out this recipe snap a pic and tag us on Instagram using @blooming_bites we would love to see how your smoked salmon and cream cheese bites turned out.
