If you can’t find crème fraîche, use sour cream.

Smoked Salmon Blini

goop

It’s not difficult to make blini from scratch, but on a night when you’re treating yourself, we think the cooking should be left to an absolute minimum. Plus, the blini available in grocery stores these days are downright delicious. Serve these as an appetizer for guests or make a bunch and eat them for dinner in front of a good holiday movie.

Makes 12 canapés

12 store-bought blini

12 teaspoons crème fraîche

2 ounces good quality smoked salmon, cut into bite size pieces

chives to garnish

fresh lemon juice to garnish

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Place the blini on a baking sheet and pop in the oven for 5 minutes, or until just warm.

3. Top each with a teaspoon of crème fraîche and a piece of smoked salmon.

4. Garnish with chopped chives and a squeeze of fresh lemon.
