Need a great, no bake, party app idea?  Take one from me and Thomas Keller, this will be a hit.  I often have people tell me they “hate cooking” “don’t know how” or  “f*%k it up every time”  well then, this ones for you.   Follow these steps to an easy, frustration free, party hors d’oeuvre.

Go the store and buy:

  • 4 oz  sliced smoked salmon
  • 1 large shallot
  • Sesame and seaweed crackers
  • 1 lemon
  • chives
  • 4 oz of crème fraîche or if you can’t find it, sour cream will do just fine.

To assemble:

1. Dice the smoked salmon and place in a medium-sized bowl.

2. Mince the shallot,  add to the bowl.

3. Mince 1 tbsp of chives, add to the bowl

4. Add 1 tbsp of lemon juice.

5. Add a few pinches of white pepper, if you have it (no need to buy, just to add)

6. Give it a quick toss.

7. Lay out the sesame-seaweed crackers on a platter, top each cracker with a tablespoon of the salmon. Dollop with a small amount of crème fraîche and garnish with a 1″ piece of chive.  Serve right away.

My finished product; a bit rushed on presentation, but the flavor was all there!

Let me know how it turns out! I hope you enjoy…
