Only 5 ingredients needed to make these flavorful roasted potato and smoked salmon appetizer skewers! They will disappear in no time. Thank you to The Little Potato Company for helping me share this post with you.
If every day was filled with some sort of smoked salmon appetizer, my boys would be constantly grinning from ear to ear. As it is, smoked salmon makes an appearance just a few time a year around here. One of our New Year's Eve traditions is to snack on smoked salmon on crackers with cream cheese and capers early in the evening, then to indulge in a late dinner (anything to keep us awake until midnight) of cheese, meat and veggie fondues. Every single year since before my husband and I were married. It's a great tradition if it can make it 20 years!
Last year I came up with a new contender for our favorite healthy cocktail party recipes. Since there is always some form of Little Potato Company Creamer potatoes in the house, I decided it was high time to use them in an appetizer recipe. Mini Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Potatoes! Must try, my friends.
For this smoked salmon appetizer recipe, I used the Little Potato Company Oven/Grill Ready Creamer potatoes in the Onion Medley flavor. However, if you don't have the Oven|Grill Ready ones on hand, substitute any one of the smaller Creamer potato varietals and add some olive oil, salt and pepper before roasting the potatoes. The littlest ones work the best because you want to be able to easily wrap a piece of smoked salmon around the potato. While the potatoes are roasting, prepare the smoked salmon and mix together a simple yogurt-dill sauce to spread on the salmon.
Altogether...only 5 ingredients needed for appetizers that are sure to disappear in no time!
