This is as easy as an appetizer recipe gets! I didn’t smoke the salmon, I didn’t whip up the cream cheese and I certainly didn’t bake the bread. Only two skills are required for this recipe; shopping for the ingredients and the ability to assemble them and come up with this beautiful result.
After so much holiday cooking and a few fan activities still going on here and there, like the football playoffs, it is only fair that for a change, we make a finger food that is incredibly delicious and requires very little effort to prepare.
It is time to enjoy the smoky flavor of this salty and smooth salmon on a baguette!
Note: The cream cheese can be substituted with other smooth spreadable cheeses such as Chèvre
