Smoked Salmon Bruschetta

Smoked Salmon Bruschetta

  • PREP:

  • SERVES: 2 dozen

Spice smoked salmon with fragrant white pepper, pungent fenugreek and aromatic thyme for an elegant, wintertime twist on bruschetta.

INGREDIENTS

Use organic ingredients where possible.

Bruschetta

  • 1 loaf hearty, crusty bread such as sourdough, with plenty of air pockets and a thick crust
  • 2 to 3 large cloves of garlic, peeled and split lengthwise
  • 12 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Frontier® Sea Salt and Frontier® Organic Cracked Black Pepper, to taste

Salmon Topping

  • 10 to 12 ounces cold-smoked salmon, chopped*
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 shallots, peeled and julienned (or substitute 12 a small red onion)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons capers, strained
  • 14 teaspoon Frontier® Organic White Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Frontier® Organic Ground Fenugreek Seed
  • 1 teaspoon Frontier® Organic Thyme

* This is the more moist type of smoked salmon, commonly referred to as Scottish smoked salmon, or its nearly identical version, lox. The hot smoked variety, more common in the Pacific northwest, is perfectly delicious for this purpose, but very different, and should be flaked rather than chopped.

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the chopped smoked salmon with the oil, lemon zest, juice, shallots, capers and spices. Incorporate thoroughly and refrigerate for 1 hour to overnight.
  2. Fire up your grill according to manufacturers instructions (real wood tastes best, but gas grills are fine for this purpose, too). If you don't have access to a good hot grill, toast bread slices carefully under a broiler.
  3. Cut the bread into 24 slices, each roughly 1/2-inch thick, 2 inches wide and 3 inches long.
  4. Rub both sides thoroughly with the split side of a clove of garlic, then brush both sides lightly with olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and grill over medium heat, turning frequently, until charred with grill marks and golden brown but not burnt.
  5. Serve immediately either with the salmon portioned onto each slice, or on the side for guests to scoop.
