Smoked Salmon Bites with Mustard Butter

Smoked Salmon Bites with Mustard Butter

I made this for parents’ snack which apparently was a welcome treat to the all-too-common crackers and carrot sticks. Makes roughly 10 to 12 servings.

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • sea salt and ground pepper
  • capers for garnesh
  • 1 baguette, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 pound thinly sliced smoked salmon

Optional: If you prefer, the sliced bread can be toasted first before spreading the mustard butter.

  1. In a bowl, beat the butter with the Dijon and whole grain mustard, lemon zest and 1 tablespoon dill and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Spread the mustard butter onto the sliced bread. Top with smoked salmon, a couple of fresh dill sprigs, a couple capers and arrange on a platter to serve.
