Smoked salmon appetizers you can make in 10 minutes
Appetizers are definitely my favorite part of a meal. So many times I have found my self full, just from eating appetizers. Smoked salmon appetizers are super versatile and you can combine them with bread, crackers, rolled with cheese or placed on vegetables.
I love to combine it with fresh cheese, but also with fresh herbs. Delicate taste and texture of smoked salmon always makes me think of simple dishes, light and without too many ingredients.
For this dish I have used only 3 main ingredients:
- 2 zucchini
- 1 cup of fresh cottage cheese
- 200 grams of smoked salmon
- salt & pepper to taste
- your preferred fresh herbs (dill, parsley, oregano, major or basil)
- capers for decorations
Wash and slice the zucchini.
I like to cut them under 45 degree angle to get elongated slices.
Grill them lightly on both sides and set aside to cool down.
Take your cottage cheese in a small bowl and add you preferred fresh herbs with salt & pepper.
Mix it all together. Taste it. If necessary repeat. I personally like my smoked salmon appetizers not too salty but rather fresh.
Place the grilled zucchini on the plate and with a small spoon add cheese. Now take pieces of salmon and place it over the cheese.
If you want, you can decorate it with some capers and serve your smoked salmon appetizers.
This is a light appetizer you can serve for lunch or dinner.
