Smoked Salmon Fingers

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Lori Mama

I saw an episode of The Barefoot Contessa the other day and had to try this appetizer. She made hers as sandwiches, but I thought it was kind of neat to display the Salmon since it's so expensive. I scaled down the serving size as well. The recipe came from her Book Party show. I wasn't able to get the entire ingredient list as the site didn't have it posted. I believe it's close however.

Even though I couldn't get the cocktail bread, I made the spread and used "everything" bagels for our breakfast. Fabulous flavor with the fresh herbs and the salmon. I will definitely make this again.
