These smoked salmon goat cheese toasts are among my favorite appetizers to prepare as they are so easy to put together, and taste fabulous.

Always a huge hit with guests!

The one ingredient that makes a surprising difference is the sliver of lemon peel on each piece of salmon. The added zing from the lemon peel perks up the salmon and completes each bite.

Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Toasts Recipe

If you have access to goat cheese that is packaged already mixed with herbs, you can use that instead of the plain goat cheese and herbs called for here.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz soft fresh goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons of grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 30 thin slices French-bread baguette
  • 12 oz thinly sliced smoked salmon
  • Thinly peeled lemon peel strips from one lemon, cut into tiny slivers*

*Use a sharp vegetable peeler to peel wide strips from a lemon. Probably the peel from just half of one lemon will do. Take a metal spoon and scoop out and discard any white pith that is under the peels you've removed. The pith is bitter. Then slice the peel into tiny slivers. If you do this part in advance, cover with plastic wrap so the strips do not dry out before you put them on the salmon.

Method

1 Mix cheese, herbs, lemon zest, pepper: Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix first goat cheese, herbs, lemon zest, and black pepper in a small bowl to blend. Set aside. (The cheese mixture can be mixed a couple of days ahead of time.)

2 Toast bread slices in oven: Brush oil over both sides of bread slices. Arrange bread in single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake until bread is just crisp, about 5 minutes on each side. (You can prepare the toasts a couple hours in advance.)

3 Assemble salmon, cheese, toasts: Spread cheese mixture over toasts. Top with salmon, trimming to fit. Garnish with lemon peel strips. Arrange on platter and serve.

Which cheese goes with smoked salmon?

To serve smoked salmon, try spreading some horseradish and cream cheese on it and then rolling it up into bite-size pieces. You can also serve smoked salmon on top of crackers, bread, cheese, and cucumber slices. It's also delicious if you mix it in with a salad or pair it with some sliced apples and pears.

  • Sartori basil and olive oil cheese complements mild fish, such as tilapia.
  • If you're cooking a dense fish, such as Hy-Vee Responsible Choice tuna, salmon or mahi mahi, crumble lemon Stilton on the top as you let it rest after removing it from the grill or oven.

Also know, what cheese goes well with salmon?

Double cream brie would go well, or any mild, surface ripened cheese like St Paulin or a mild Munster etc.. very A very mild Vermont cheddar ( I'd use white for the color contrast) could work if the burger was a little more seasoned. A nice colby would go well.

What bread goes with smoked salmon?

Slice plain or sourdough bagels, toast them and top with a thin layer of cream cheese, a few thin slices of smoked salmon and some fresh dill for lighter brunch or luncheon fare.


1. Finely mince the oregano, rosemary, and fresh basil. Finely grate the garlic. Add the goat cheese, herbs, garlic, salt, and pepper to a mixing bowl.

2. Combine well then set aside.

3. Cut the stem off the bottom of the radicchio. Carefully peel apart the leaves until you have 16 leaves for serving. I like to use more of the inner leaves for their size and shape. You can save any leftover radicchio for other salads or recipes. Wash the leaves then dry them.

4. On each radicchio leave lay a piece of smoked salmon then a ½ ounce of the herbed goat cheese.

5. Sprinkle some black pepper across the top then serve.

This makes a total of 16 servings of Smoked Salmon & Goat Cheese Bites. Each serving comes out to be 46.19 Calories, 3.33g Fats, 0.94g Net Carbs, and 3.43g Protein.


Puff Pastry Smoked Salmon Quiche With Goat Cheese

19 Oct, 2018 Puff Pastry Smoked Salmon Quiche With Goat Cheese Joanne Rappos breakfast The easy smoked salmon quiche that's perfect for breakfast or dinner puff pastry, smoked salmon, salmon, goat cheese, quiche puff pastry, smoked salmon, salmon, goat cheese, quiche

This recipe came out of necessity to eat out all of the smoked salmon we had in the fridge. When you buy a Costco pack of it you get creative with it. Although really and truly my husband is quite happy eating it out of the package standing by the fridge. He does absolutely love it in quiche form as well and that is why I ended up making this quiche.

I have made it before with many variations but this is my go to one, and this was the first time I decided to actually measure things more accurately when making it. The base recipe of eggs and cream is pretty standard for most quiches but the add ins is where you can really shine creatively. You can go as wild as you want to as simple as you want. I love leeks in bakes and in quiches and that’s why I included them in this quiche. Leeks are similar in flavour to green onions expect a lot milder and also have a sweetness that green onions do not have. You can definitely substitute with a small bunch green onions though if you can’t get your hands on any leeks.

My husband was eating the smoked salmon on toast with goat cheese and that is why I decided to dollop goat cheese onto this quiche as I had some on hand. It adds a little tang and extra richness to the quiche We loved it but you can alternatively substitute with cream cheese or crumble feta over it instead also.

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that you can totally use store bought puff pasty for the base of the tart. What’s easier than that? Feel free to make some homemade if you like. I have a recipe for homemade on the blog that you can check out. But I always have some store bought puff pastry in the freezer and it’s totally perfect for dishes like this. There is no bling baking necessary. Both the filing and tart puff up quite a bit while baking but once the quiche is out of the oven and starts to rest, everything settles.

Quiches are classic and are always in fashion and already always loved on the breakfast table, brunch table and even the lunch or dinner table too! This would be the perfect dinner with a side salad and a glass of wine and so low effort. It’s the perfect thing to make for brunch as well as it is meat and eggs in one. There are so many fabulous filling combinations that you could use and I will definitely be experimenting with many more to come in the meantime this is a fabulous classic combo of flavours in a quiche and think that you will love it!!


Ketie’s Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Appetizers

recipe by Ketie Colafella

  • 1 package of thinly sliced good quality smoked salmon
  • 1 fresh lemon
  • 2 or 3 teaspoons of rinsed capers
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, diced into small cubes
  • goat cheese of your choice (plain, or flavored, like Boursin)

Here’s Ketie prepping the ingredients in her own kitchen

Place the pieces of smoked salmon in a bowl, torn into bite sized pieces. Squeeze some lemon juice over the salmon, then roughly chop some capers, add it to the bowl with some onion, and follow with a drizzle of the olive oil. Mix all of these ingredients together by hand.

Arrange the smoked salmon on a serving tray, leaving space to put the goat cheese (and crackers or bread if you want them on the same tray together.)

Drizzle the salmon with more lemon juice, olive oil, some whole capers, and the diced red onion. Cover and set aside for 2 hours (place in the fridge if it will be longer than 2 hours.) Place the cheese and crackers/bread on the plate just before serving. See, I told you this smoked salmon and goat cheese appetizer was easy!

To serve, spread some cheese on a piece of bread or a cracker and top with a piece of smoked salmon.
