Here’s a party foul I am frequently guilty of committing — getting completely obsessed with one of the party appetizers and hovering over the dish, shooing away anyone else from trying any. It’s a super classless way to behave, but I can’t seem to help it. I just love me some party apps!
The last time I did this was at Thanksgiving — my husband’s aunt brought the most adorable little salmon-dill-mini-corn muffin things, and I completely inhaled them. If it has salmon and dill in it, I’m guaranteed to love it, and these were especially delicious. When she told me what they had in them, I knew I had to give them a try at home.
This was a slightly different take — I made them into crostini, since I didn’t quite have the time or energy to whip up some corn muffins. If you like salmon and dill, you’ll adore these. Plus – they’re simple and elegant, so they’re perfect for holiday entertaining!
SMOKED SALMON AND DILL CROSTINI (windykitchen original, inspired by Lisa’s recipe)
1 baguette, sliced into one-inch thick slices
olive oil, for brushing on baguettes
8 oz crème freche
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish
4 oz smoked salmon, chopped
1. Preheat oven’s broiler. Place baguette slices on baking sheet and brush slices with olive oil. Place under broiler until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
2. Combine crème freche with garlic, salt, and chopped dill. Spread sauce over toasted baguette slices, then top with smoked salmon. Garnish with dill sprigs, if desired.
Delicious! Try not to hog them all, OK?
