Whether you're looking for a light lunch idea or an hors' doeuvre this smoked salmon, sour cream and horseradish appetizer will please.
For some reason way back when, I decided horseradish & smoked salmon/trout would go well together... and oh they do!
Slice the ciabatta or baguette, not too thick, not too thin.
Spread approx 1 tsp horseradish relish/cream onto the bread or biscuit.
Separate 1 slice of smoked salmon and lay (undulating if necessary) onto the bread.
Drizzle the salmon with a little lime juice then sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Smear 1tsp (or so) of sour cream/cremé fraiche
Sprinkle chives on top.
Cremé fraiche is slightly less 'sour' than sour cream, so if you don't like the sourness of sour cream, use it.
For added 'zing' you could also use a little lime zest on the salmon when adding the juice.
For a really special occasion, add a sprinkling of caviar atop the cream.
