“I’ll love you, dear, I’ll love you till China and Africa meet and the river jumps over the mountain and the salmon sing in the street.” - W. H. Auden 

Occasionally, we love having a dinner where the table is spread with little tidbits. Canapés; bite sized morsels of smoked salmon, cheeses and vegetables; little baked puff pastry cheese triangles; smoked oysters; buttered squares of home-made bread; potato chips, etc. These meals can be quite some trouble to prepare, but they are a wonderful change, and the smorgasbord effect is usually appreciated by our visitors. Each person can have what they fancy and as much as they like.

Smoked Salmon Canapés

Sliced home-made bread squares, buttered
Marinated smoked salmon slices
Cream cheese (softened and whipped)
Chopped fresh dill

Marinate the smoked salmon in olive oil and lemon juice. You can use it unmarinated if you wish. Cut the salmon into small strips and roll each piece around a few capers to form a bite-sized morsel.
Spread the cream cheese on the buttered bread squares and lay the salmon parcels on them. Decorate with the dill. Enjoy!

  1. You must come to our sunday brunches with the sisterhood - smoked salmon and creamed cheese on seeded bagels. If people want scrambled or poached egg on the bagel, they order them separately. I will shout you the espressos :)
