Ingredients

24 slices cocktail rye bread
2 tablespoons (30 mL) lemon juice
2 tablespoons (30 mL) brewed black tea or vodka
1 tablespoon (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons (10 mL) Dijon mustard
Freshly ground pepper to taste
8 ounces (250 grams) sliced smoked salmon, finely chopped (1 1/3 cups/340 mL)
1/4 cup (65 mL) finely diced red onion
3 tablespoons (45 mL) chopped fresh dill, plus sprigs for garnish
2 tablespoons (30 mL) drained capers, rinsed and coarsely chopped

 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Arrange the cocktail rye bread slices in a single layer on the baking sheet. Spray the tops of slices lightly with nonstick spray. Bake the slices just until crisp, 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Whisk the lemon juice, tea (or vodka), oil, mustard, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the smoked salmon, onion, dill, and capers. Toss to mix well.
  3. Shortly before serving, mound about 1 tablespoon of topping on each slice of toast. Garnish each with a dill sprig. One serving is 2 canapés.
