My Smoked Whitefish Mini Toasts are a holiday treat. Bite-sized and tasty, they’ll also grace your appetizer table with a festive color and flavor combination.
So simple, mini toasts are topped with a dollop of smoked whitefish salad spread, a mini cucumber slice, and then garnished with a sliver or two of roasted red pepper.
There are a number of prepared smoked whitefish salads available in the seafood section or refrigerated section of your local grocer. My husband bought Blue Hill Bay‘s whitefish salad at our local Costco. I usually freeze half of the smoked whitefish salad for later use. If you choose to freeze the smoked whitefish salad, be sure to use it within 2 months or it can separate and become watery.
Start with some mini toasts. Whole Foods Market sells mini toasts in regular and whole wheat versions. You could use a dark pumpernickel bread cut into squares if you prefer.
Add a dollop of smoked whitefish salad to each mini-toast. Slice some mini-cucumbers. They look nicer when sliced for small bite-sized appetizers and you can leave the skin on for color. And slice some roasted red pepper into slivers that you can use for a garnish on top of the mini toasts.
Arrange the mini toasts on a pretty platter. They’re ready to serve! You can keep them chilled in a refrigerator for up to an hour before serving. Best when served immediately.
