Smoked salmon and dill is one of my favorite combinations. And a touch of cream cheese adds just enough creaminess to make these one-bite apps light but satisfying. Small pieces of smoked trout would be a great substitute if you aren’t a fan of salmon. You can make these 1 day ahead of time, just keep them chilled in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.


Smoked salmon cucumber bites

Servings: 20-25

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 large cucumber, sliced
  • 4 oz smoked salmon
  • 4 tbsp whipped light cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped (plus more for topping)
  • 1.5 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
METHOD
  1. Slice cucumber into equal sized slices and set aside.
  2. Cut salmon into 20-25 small pieces. (*Note: I cut the salmon into small strips then rolled each one up so they looked nice and uniform on top of the each cucumber).
  3. Combine cream cheese, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and stir until combined and smooth.
  4. Top each cucumber slice with cream cheese followed by a piece of salmon. Top with fresh dill if desired.
  5. Serve chilled.
