I can't believe I forgot to rate this! This is a wonderful appy for St. Pat's and I plan to eat it every year from here on out! Toasting the savory/sweet soda bread gives it a nice crunch in contrast with the creamy topping and supple smoked salmon. I'm completely hooked and sorry St. Pat's comes but once a year!
The only changes I make here is to subsititute wholewheat flour in the bread for the oatmeal and leave out the raisins. Some pubs in Boston serve smoked salmon on similar bread to this. Great appetizer. Thanks for submitting so more people can appreciate the goodness of soda bread.
