Start your meal off with something a bit posh …
Smokey Salmon Crostini!
It’s gorgeous and taste amazing. I enjoy eating this Smokey Salmon Crostini any time, as a light lunch, for brunch and most definitely as an elegant intro into any meal.
What makes this so incredibly tasty is the not so secret ingredient, Gullah Gravy Mopping Sauce. An insanely delicious and versatile sauce that can be used to marinate any meat or fish, as a dipping sauce (ALWAYS!), you can even add it to soups or use in salad dressings. For this recipe, it’s tucked neatly into the whipped cream cheese to give it a lovely bite.
I’m addicted to that sauce, needless to say, and am pleased to have been introduced to it by my friend Sid … who happens to be the mastermind behind the Gullah Gravy Mopping Sauce itself. So a big thank you to SID! If you want to check out the story behind the sauce or more information, please visit Gullah Gravy and be awakened to an amazing new sauce for your pantry.
I created this recipe for him and had to share it with you … it’s crazy simple to prepare and you will win the hearts of many when you serve it. 😉
So for this recipe, try to buy the best quality Smoked Salmon slices that you can afford (from your local grocer’s fish department).
- Lox Smoked Salmon, 1 package
- ½ cup Whipped Cream Cheese
- 3 Tbls Gullah Gravy
- ¼ tsp Liquid Smoke
- Baguette, sliced into ¼ inch pieces
- Olive Oil
- Fresh Chives, chopped
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Using the Olive Oil, brush each piece of sliced Baguette. Place on baking sheet and bake in oven for about 8 - 10 min or until golden brown.
- In a small bowl, mix together the Whipped Cream Cheese, Gullah Gravy and Liquid Smoke.
- To Assemble:
- Top the toasted Baguette with the Cream Cheese, add the Smoked Salmon with another dollop of Whipped Cream Cheese. Sprinkle with some Capers and Chives.
- Serve and Indulge with a smile!
You can also buy the premade toasted Baguettes from your local bakery to use instead.
(psst … Nope, I was not compensated for this post, I just love the sauce and wanted to share!)
