5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. A savory, delicious appetizer that looks as amazing as it tastes! The potato baskets are the perfect base for the luscious cream cheese and silky salmon. Pungent toasted capers add a surprising punch! The recipe could also be made in a standard size muffin tin and served for breakfast/brunch.
