Smoked Salmon Bites


Getting together with friends? Need the perfect appetizer for that holiday party? Look no further! These Smoked Salmon Bites are a beautiful appetizer that is both very appealing and so savory. The delicate caviar and fresh dill sprigs add the perfect touch to these creamy smoked bites of heaven!


- *1 medium yellow squash
- 4 oz. 1/3 less-fat cream cheese
- 2 tsp. grated lemon rind
- 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
- Cooked smoked salmon strips (each strip is 2 oz.)
- Salmon caviar
- fresh dill sprigs

* This recipe called for yellow or Chioggia beets but I could not find those anywhere, so I used yellow squash. However, feel free to serve on crackers, little breads, or anything that sounds good to you. 

Cut the squash into slices (thick enough to hold appetizer; about 1/4" slices). Trim edges off sides of squash to form squares, if you'd like. Line squash squares on a serving tray or plate. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, lemon rind, and lemon juice. Lay the salmon on the squash where one end of the salmon lines with the edge of the squash. Place a small dollop of cream cheese mixture (about 1/2 tsp.) on salmon and then fold the other side of the salmon over the mixture. Add another dollop of cream cheese mixture on top, garnish each with 2 or 3 caviar eggs, and fresh dill. Enjoy! If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here!
