Everyone loves smoked salmon, right?

You name it.
Bring it on.

Easy Smoked Salmon Canapes with Cream Cheese Recipe
- 4 slices pumpernickel bread
- 2 slices smoked salmon
- 3 tbsp cream cheese
- 2 tbsp fresh dill chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
Transfer the cream cheese to a small bowl or cup and add the freshly chopped dill and parsley. Season with a little pinch of pepper and salt.
Stir the cream cheese until well combined. Then with a small serving ring or pastry cutter make little canapes with a diameter of a little over an inch (about 3 cm).
Place the smoked salmon slices on a clean chopping board and slice them into long even strips. Then roll the slices up one by one making little rose like rolls.
Place the pumpernickel canapés on a serving plate and top each of them with some of the dill cream cheese. Then place a roll of the smoked salmon on top of it and sprinkle with the black sesame seeds, some freshly ground black pepper and some extra fresh dill. Serve the salmon canapés when they are at room temperature, not chilled or the smoked salmon and dill will loose much of their flavor.
