SMOKED SALMON TOASTS WITH MUSTARD BUTTER (Adapted from Food and Wine)
These little tidbits are sooooo good, and the best part is – they take about 5 minutes to put together! I loved them so much, that the next time I was at the store, I bought the ingredients and made them again! That combination of smoked salmon, dill and lemony spread – OMG!
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1 TBSP grainy mustard
1/2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
2 TSBP chopped dill
Freshly ground pepper
1 baguette, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 pound thinly sliced smoked salmon
Preheat the broiler and position a rack 6 inches from the heat. In a bowl, beat the butter with the Dijon and grainy mustards, lemon zest and 1 tablespoon of the dill and season with salt and pepper.
Spread the baguette slices on a large rimmed baking sheet and broil until golden and crisp, ~ 1 1/2 minutes per side. Let cool.
Spread the toasts with the mustard butter, top with the smoked salmon and arrange on a platter. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of dill and serve.
