Now, I can’t take all the credit...this was introduced to us by my sweet cousin, Jenn, at a tea party she hosted a couple months ago. My daughter loved them so much, she ate most of it and even got to bring some home!
- (1) cucumber (chopped) 🥒
- (1) packet of smoked salmon (can use any)
- Tub of whipped cream cheese (chive-flavored)
- Jar of caviar (can use any but black tobikko is preferred)
- fresh dill
TOOLS: Knife, chopping board, (2) small spoons OR piping bag
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: NONE
STEP #1: Chop your cucumber into chips! No need to peel the skin.
Now, place a strip on each cucumber chip.
I think a piping bag will help solve this issue. You can easily make one by taking a ziploc bag. Scoop about a cup of cream cheese into it, then snip off one of the bottom corners to easily squeeze it through. Not only will it be a clean process, but it’ll be much more presentable!
Adding the cream cheese provides a nice contrast to the salmon and gives it that "depth" that would be missing, otherwise.
You can use any but I prefer the black tobikko that my cousin placed on top of hers. The black caviar provides a nice color contrast to the whole thing! I went to my neighborhood Safeway and they only sold the salmon (orange) fish eggs.
THE TASTE TEST...
I encourage you to give this simple recipe a try and let me know what you think!
