    Smoked Salmon & Lemon Crème Fraîche Finger Sandwiches

    Source of Recipe

    From "Wine Bites" by Barbara Scott-Goodman

    Recipe Introduction

    "These lovely little sandwiches, made with tangy lemon crème fraîche and thin slices of bread, smoked salmon, and cucumber, may technically be considered tea sandwiches, but I prefer them with wine. Try them with a glass of rosé, or a Champagne cocktail and I think you will agree."

    List of Ingredients

    • ½ cup crème fraîche
    • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
    • 1 Tbsp capers, rinsed and drained
    • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 8 thin slices rye, white, or whole-wheat bread, crusts trimmed
    • 12 thin slices smoked salmon
    • 12 thin slices cucumber


    In a small bowl, stir together the crème fraîche, lemon juice, capers, dill, and pepper to taste. Spread over four slices of the bread. Arrange the salmon and cucumber over the spread.

    Top with the remaining bread slices.

    Quarter each sandwich into triangles or squares, or cut lengthwise into three rectangles. Serve at once.

    Makes 12 or 16 finger sandwiches;
    Serves 6 to 8
