Smoked Salmon & Horseradish Canape

By: The Food Hunter


Smoked salmon canapes are sophisticated, effortless and perfect for a party. For those that don't know a canape is a thin piece of bread topped with your choice of savory foods. The canape recipe below, which I adapted from Jamie Oliver, mixes smoked salmon and tangy horseradish. Though it is a combination I hadn't tried before I can attest that this dainty appetizer is quite delicious.
 

Smoked Salmon & Horseradish Canape
(adapted from Jamie Oliver)

Add prepared horseradish to crème fraîche until desired tang is reached. Season with salt and mix well. Set aside.
 
Cut ciabatta into thin slices and toast. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Top with smoked salmon. 
Add a dollop of horseradish crème fraîche to each toast and top with radish sprouts. Finish with a  drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

  8. I have never (even thought!) to use horseradish with smoked salmon and I think your combination would be so flavorful. Smoked salmon is such a strong flavor and the creaminess of creme fraiche w/horseradish, YUM! Pinning will be trying this over the weekend!

  24. The paleo diet can be defined as the natural food which was being used by the ancient people during the Paleolithic era. It is also called Paleolithic diet, Caveman diet and stone-age diet. Cavemen used to get the food by hunting animals and gathering fruits, nuts, vegetables etc.

  25. These look delightful! I had to peek at the ingredients list to see what the little shoots you used were. I haven't tried radish shoots before -- but they look a lot like pea shoots, which I love.
