Even though I didn't have the correct type of smoked salmon, these were delicious! I will have them again, just so I can do the salmon flowers! The pepper is very integral to the overall taste, here, so don't stint! The cucumber cools it down, nicely. Thnx for posting, hon! Made for KcK's Forum.
This was delicious! I featured this app, your french radishes, and your pain d'epices (for dessert) at a french-themed dinner party. I wanted light appetizers, since Ina Garten's Boeuf Bourguignon was my main dish. Guests loved the flavors, and really liked the contrast between the creme fraiche and the smoky salmon; the cool crunch of cucumber was refreshing. I do wish that I'd put more pepper in the creme fraiche, and a bit of salt, but I will do that next time - and there will definitely be a next time. Thank you for posting such a lovely appetizer recipe, French Tart!
What a treat with a Mart Mart- I used lite garden/veggie cream cheese instead of the Creme Fraiche, lots of fresh ground pepper and Lovely Lox. Will do again for sure Thanks FT
It sounded so promising, but the result was quite disappointing. The flavours just didn't fit together, and the overall impression was quite bland. Sorry!
Delish! So easy to to put together - my DS (14) made them for DH birthday as a starter. Everyone loved them. Lovely texture of soft salmon, creamy creme fraiche and crunchy cucumber - will make again and again.
