Excitement and a new recipe too!

I've mentioned I have a HUGE announcement tomorrow... and I'm about to bust at the seams in excitement.  But I do have a new recipe I want to share as well...

We had leftover salmon and I wanted to create something that could be made at breakfast, lunch or as an evening appetizer and this is what I came up with!

Salmon with Shallot Spread Appetizers

  • Smoked Salmon
  • Ciabatta bread, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 T olive oil
  • 1 pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 1 shallot, minced fine
  • 1 T fresh rosemary, minced fine
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions:   In a saute pan, heat the olive oil and fry your Ciabatta bread until toasted on both sides.  In a bowl, mix the softened cream cheese with the shallots, rosemary, lemon zest and juice and season well with salt and pepper.  Spread onto each piece of toasted Ciabatta bread and top with the smoked salmon.  I like using chilled salmon, but room temperature is just fine as well.  For added zip, squeeze a little additional lemon juice over each piece and pepper again.   Enjoy!
