Smoked Salmon Canapés on Rye bread

Smoked Salmon Canapés on Rye bread

These Smoked Salmon Rye bread Canapés are little beauties, a perfect starter for any meal.  Or simply a lovely drinks canapé, I love Smoked Salmon especially on Rye Bread! So why not make your canapés? And everyone needs a smoked salmon Canapé in their repatoire – obvs!!

And not only does it taste amazing it’s also a  lovely get ahead snack! This means  you can enjoy the party as well as your guests, bonus is they also look so pretty and really classy! Winner winner!

I serve them in the lounge with champagne on Christmas Day while we open some presents  (as they are served cold you don’t need the oven).  That way you can dedicate your oven space for all the important stuff like the turkey and roast potatoes.

This way the starter is out the way and I just seat my guests then for the main event – so easy and so much less complicated than doing starters at the table. I also tend to make these Roquefort Bruchetta with peach and honey too…. so good! And they work perfectly with the Salmon ones.

I also serve them at  summer drinks parties too – that way you can enjoy the good times!They look stunning on a large white platter….

Or why not makes these Pate Whirls, Make them ahead and pop them in the freezer and chick them in the oven and bake from frozen?!

Let me know what nibbles you’ll be making? These Canapés are so lovely and homemade – what’s not to love?

I hate all that frozen party stuff , like really hate it. Why would u=ypu buy all that frozen brown food when it’s so easy to make your own, so much cheaper and way more tasty. Start with these lovely Smoked Salmon Canapés, don’t buy them, make them!

Have fun
