Smoked Salmon Recipes
Using smoked salmon as an appetizer can be quite elegant and this recipe incorporates homemade dill butter for added herbal flavor.
1 C. butter or margarine
3/4 C. fresh dill sprigs
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
4 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2 French baguettes
8 oz. smoked salmon, sliced very thin
Let butter sit out of refrigerator to reach room temperature. If necessary, place butter in a dish and microwave for a minute or two until butter becomes soft. Remove dill leaves from large sprigs. Add dill, garlic and salt to food processor. Process until chopped. Add butter and process until smooth. Slowly add lemon juice while processing until mixed completely. Remove butter from processor and scrape sides to get as much as possible. Refrigerate butter until ready to use.
Cut baguettes into very thin slices, about 1/4-1/2" wide with a very sharp bread knife. Spread a small amount of dill butter on each slice, and top it with a small piece of smoked salmon. Arrange on a platter and serve. Optional: If you would like to really dress these up, you can sprinkle a small amount of caviar on top of each canape.
