  • 20 crostini
  • 2 ounces smoked salmon
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (spreadable or softened)
  • 1 small bunch dill


  • Place the blinis or crostinis on a serving tray or cutting board.
  • Spread a thick layer of cream cheese on top of crostinis or blinis.
  • Add a piece of smoked salmon on top of the cream cheese. Garnish with a small sprig of fresh dill. Keep the canapes refrigerated, or serve them immediately.



  • The salmon canapes taste best when served immediately, but can be refrigerated for a few hours if required.
  • Use flavored or seasoned cream cheese to add more flavor to the bites.
  • You can replace the crostini with any savory crackers that you like, and add extra toppings like herbs or vegetables as you please.
