Quick smoked salmon and cream cheese appetizers

Scorrere verso il basso

These quick canapés with cream cheese and smoked salmon are very simple and easy to prepare appetizers. They are made with Ritz crackers which add a slightly sweet note but you can use any type of crackers you like. The spreadable cream cheese is garnished with chopped parsley and the green part of the spring onion which adds a spicy aftertaste. You can decorate them with olives, wild fennel or pink pepper corns or, like me, garnish them with avocado or dried tomatoes and capers.
