Smoked Salmon and Boursin Crostini

Hosting dinner parties can be so much fun. But preparing for them can be challenging when we have very little free time.

If you are trying to figure out something special to serve that is quick and easy to prepare, consider this elegant appetizer made with cold-smoked salmon and Boursin cheese.

Appetizers made with smoked salmon are a favourite with my family and friends. Though both cold and hot smoked salmon are delicious, I love using cold smoked salmon to make simple appetizers like this Smoked Salmon Crostini or this Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese Dip.

How to Make it

This Smoked Salmon and Boursin Crostini is made with only 6 ingredients. It's ready in minutes and looks beautiful and classy once assembled.

Steps Overview:

You can prepare parts of this appetizer ahead of time by toasting your slices of baguette and combining the ingredients of the Boursin spread the day before the party.

Just refrigerate the spread and keep the crostini in a container at room temperature until you're ready to assemble the appetizer.

To make the spread, combine the Boursin cheese with the sour cream by whisking it vigorously to form a velvety smooth cream that can be easily spread.

Spread a dollop of the mixture on the crostini and then lay a slice of smoked salmon on top.

If desired, sprinkle with a tiny amount of ground smoked pepper (or regular pepper) and top with a spear or two of fresh chives. Et voilà, you're all done!

Ingredients
  

  • 24 slices of baguette (that’s about 1/2 baguette sliced into 1/4-inch rounds)
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 115 grams smoked salmon
  • 7 tablespoon Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs
  • 7 tablespoon sour cream I used full fat
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked pepper (optional but so good)
  • a few sprigs of fresh chives optional

Instructions
 

  • Place a rack 6 inches from the broiler element and heat the broiler on high.
  • Set the slices of baguette on a baking sheet. Brush the tops with a little olive oil.
  • Place the baking sheet under the broiler and toast the bread until they are crispy and lightly golden on top, about 2 minutes.
  • Whisk the Boursin cheese with the sour cream until you have a lump free creamy consistency.
  • Take the crostini and spread the creamy cheese on top. Place the smoked salmon over the cheese spread and sprinkle with a tiny bit of smoked pepper (if you have it).
  • To finish, garnish with fresh chives.
  • Serve immediately.

This appetizer recipe looks delicious. I plan to make it for brunch on Sunday. But I noticed the smoked salmon is missing from the recipe ingredients. How much smoked salmon will be needed? Thanks!

Hi Heidi, so sorry about that, you'll need about 3.5 to 4 ounces (or about 115 grams) of smoked salmon.

Why would these have to be "served immediately"? I was hoping to make them to take to a "pot luck" holiday gathering which is about 30 minutes from my home.

Hi Joan, you could do that for sure, but the humidity from the cheese and sour cream spread will soften the bread a little and so the crostini won't be as crisp. Also I'm not sure how well the assembled crostinis will travel, they may come apart a bit. Is it an option to assemble the crostini at the gathering?
