The recipe for salmon canapes

  1. First of all, take care of the base : you can use toast, sandwich bread or even rye bread if you want. A good idea, for example, is to take slices and cut them into triangles , then remove the crust and flatten the bread slightly with a rolling pin.
  2. At this point, pass the bread for a few minutes in a pan to make it crunchy. Then spread the butter on each slice.
  3. Let's now pass to the filling . In a bowl, mix the Philadelphia with chives, pepper, salt, a drizzle of oil and a light grating of lemon zest, which will give the dish a slight touch of acidity .
  4. Now you just have to compose the canapes. Start with a layer of Philadelphia, then lay the salmon slices and finish with chives to decorate.
  5. Arrange them all on a tray and place them in the center of your table. Enjoy your meal!

If you want a more traditional variant, you can also simply spread a layer of butter and season the salmon with salt, pepper and lemon and serve it as one of the most classic Christmas appetizers .

We advise you to consume all the canapes immediately after preparation : the longer you wait, the more the bread will become soggy by absorbing the humidity. In any case, after a day in the fridge (well covered) they will still be good .
