Guacamole-Smoked Salmon Bruschetta

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 2 mins

I like this recipe because it is simple and easy to make. I've actually made the guacomole in advance, so that the flavours set in. This is good as part of a light supper, when some of your other recipes are just not ready yet, and you need an extra few minutes to wait.

This appetizers came just at right moment!
I used whole grain toast and I crushed the fennel seeds with the mortar.
We loved it, and we think to prepare this during the holidays again! The fennel is a great change in the guacamole and fits perfect with the salmon. I couldn't expect a better combination.
I took this recipe for the colors (green and salmon), but we are really impressed about the taste and unusual combination with fennel. Thanks a lot for this great winner!

LOVED it! But sorry for not using french bread, I used oatmeal crackers instead since I wanted to serve it as a (bite-size) starter. Everybody enjoyed it, including DD, and got a lot of 'hhhmmmmm's! I loved the addition of fennel seeds and the carrot gave a nice little crunch to it. I didn't mash the avocados, I chopped them instead. Thank you, Studentchef, for sharing this wonderful recipe, I definitely will be making it again, next time with french bread!
