Smoked salmon spread is a tried and true appetizer for many a cocktail party. But after evaluating many tray passed appetizers and buffet spreads I’ve grown just a bit tired of the same smoked salmon dip and salmon-topped pumpernickel toasts that I’ve seen offered. So with this in mind, I decided to try my hand at a smoked salmon tartar recipe that would be a light, visually appealing and an easy starter. I kicked up the flavor of these salmon tartar bites by adding a smokey flavor inspired by the use of chipotles with a hint of pickling with the use of the capers. These bites will be the perfect addition to spice up your next cocktail party spread.
