Easy Spring Appetizer: Smoked Salmon Toasts

Hello friends :) I thought I'd share an extremely easy recipe you can make this spring! Perfect for a family gathering, bridal or baby shower, this light, easy to make appetizer really hits the spot, especially for savoury types like myself. It can easily be made with smoked fish as well, preferably local! If you're in Toronto I highly recommend stopping by Gilead Cafe for some amazing local smoked fish :) Since all we had on hand was smoked salmon, we went with it and enjoyed every bite.

  • Thin, grainy bread (preferably with seeds) -- Bavarian or German bread works really well, or Pumpernickel.
  • Greek yogurt (or creme fraiche)
  • Smoked fish (salmon in this case)
  • Capers
  • Fresh Dill

Toast the bread and cut into small squares; the size of a cracker. Place on a pretty serving tray or a nice wooden cutting board for presentation. Cut smoked fish gently with a sharp knife, slowly cutting/peeling it so you have a small piece that can be folded over at least once. Place it on the toast (if you are concerned about it falling off, put a dollop of yogurt on first, before the salmon to help it adhere to the toast) -- however I didn't do that and it was fine because we ate them so fast they didn't have a chance to fall off! Then put a dollop of yogurt on top of the smoked fish, and alternate with garnishes using capers and dill. For those who don't like capers or dill, you could also drizzle a little lemon juice on top for some extra zing!

Serve and enjoy! Yummm! I recommend taking the time to make MANY of these as they go VERY FAST.

Happy Spring, Everyone!
