When there are appetizers, you can be sure that I’m going to stuff my face and have no more room for the main when it’s time to eat : that’s bad. So here is a lighter version of a smoked salmon toast (because bread is very filling), it is fresh and delicious! It is also useful if you’re having friends or family over for a meal and do not want to spend the day making fancy appetizers. Kids’ help (or wife/husband) will be greatly appreciated because it is so simple and fun.
Because it is the holidays season, smoked salmon has been cheaper here in France. I don’t really buy it usually because it is expensive but the deals are really worth it right now. Is it the same where you live? I want to know. You could use smoked trout too, that would be delicious.
I put some garlic and fines herbs cream cheese on the cucumber because cucumber is pretty bland. The fish gives it the saltiness needed to make a well balanced toast. It is yummy and you’ll have room for dessert, I swear.
Smoked salmon and cream cheese appetizers (12 toasts) :
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 slice smoked salmon
- 2-3 tbsp garlic and fine herbs cream cheese
Cut thick slices of cucumber so it won’t bend when lifted.
Add a little bit of cheese, a little bit of salmon and you’re done!
Keep refrigerated before use.
