I love the idea of a passed appetizer, but rarely get around to doing more than arranging platters on a sideboard. Anything more is akin to having to swim upstream to use what I hope is an apt metaphor.
This past weekend we hosted a birthday dinner for our good friend Mr. W. . This appetizer was a big hit and there was enough of the salmon left over for me to use in a salad the next evening. It is extremely easy to prepare and is delicious, especially since I didn’t have to smoke the salmon thanks to the good people at The Yellow Umbrella, my local fishmonger.

Spread the cracker with the cheese

Garnish with a sprig of dill.
(If you’d like the pepper and lemon juice crack the pepper over the rounds and add a dash of lemon.)
