Game day is almost here and to honor the Seattle Seahawks I have developed a tasty appetizer recipe to enjoy with friends in this special occasion. Seattle is famous for serving the best salmon lox and offering very unique point of view on their culinary offerings by bringing the farm to the table and creating menus based on seasonality. Visiting Pike’s Place, the biggest farmers market I have ever visited was such an amazing experience. You can buy the freshest salmon which is smoked right there at the market. This flavor profile of the salmon and that experience I had at Pike’s Place are the inspiration behind this Citrus Caviar Salmon bites that combine the creamy texture of the cream cheese, with the crunch of the citrus caviar or finger limes and the lusciousness of the tasty smoked salmon and the capers making it the perfect bite.
110 grams of smoked salmon fillet slices
1 cup of whipped cream cheese
2 teaspoons of capers
2 teaspoons of olive oil
24 water crackers
24 fresh parsley leaves
Preparation time: 30 minutes. Cost per canape is less than $0.75 cents. This recipe makes 24 bites. You will need a chopping block, a knife, a butter spread knife and a serving plate.
The process is very easy, start by taking the salmon slices out of the package and cut to a size of a bite. Then take the water crackers and spread some cream cheese on each, add the salmon, sprinkle with citrus caviar from a finger lime, add 2 or 3 capers per cracker, decorate with fresh parsley leaves and drizzle some olive oil.
The preparation is very easy and fast, this appetizer requires to be prepared at the moment which means you cannot prepare in advance but it will be a crowd pleaser. The combination of the ingredients and the different textures make this Citrus Caviar Salmon Bites the perfect appetizer for entertaining at home.
Let the best team win!
