Salmon Appetizer – Easy And Delicious

As you all know I love seafood. I don’t like fish as much, but salmon is the exception. I think salmon is a fish that is not too fishy in taste and, because it is a fatty fish, has yummy flavours. There are millions of recipes how you can cook the salmon, but today I want to share with you an idea how to make a delicious appetizer with smoked salmon that melts in your mouth.

The appetizer is very easy and quick to make, you only need a few ingredients – the most important being the salmon. For the filling I’ve used crème cheese (I love it, you know) and olives (because my husband loves them and because they add some saltiness to the dish).

I hope you and your guests enjoy this salmon appetizer.
