|Whipped Cream Cheese.||6 oz(soft).|
|Smoked Salmon.||6 oz.|
|Lemon Juice and Zest.||1.|
|Fresh Dill.||1 1/2 tbsp.|
|Caviar (optional) .||4-5 tbsp.|
|Cucumber.||1/2 sliced thin.|
In small bowl add the soft cream cheese, 2 tbs. lemon zest and lemon juice, salt, capers and chopped dill. Combine carefully with a mixer and leave it a side. Meanwhile, get a small piece of the Smoked Salmon at a time and fold it with your fingers in a small tube like form, and put it in a plate. Continue doing this until all the salmon is gone. Working with one smoked salmon tube at a time, fill them with the cream cheese mixture. I find it easier to do that with a small spoon. Finish filling the smoked salmon tubes with the whipped cream mixture and carefully put them in a serving platter.
Garnish with thin slices of cucumber and top with caviar (optional). Sprinkle some fresh chopped dill, and voila, you have an elegant canape ready to impress everyone.
The only thing you need is a nice chilled bottle of champagne.
