Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Canadian
Serves: 12 servings
  • 225g (8 oz) goat cheese
  • 2 tbs plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbs fresh chives, chopped
  • ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 12 plain crackers (if flavoured, make sure the cracker flavour compliments the salmon and cheese flavour... oh shucks, you'll have to taste test :-))
  • 120g (4.5 oz) Smoked Steelhead Salmon (you can use other smoked salmon options, we just love the taste of this one)
  1. Add all but the crackers and salmon to a small food processor (a regular size food processor will also work)
  2. Process until the cheese mixture is smooth.
  3. Place 12 crackers on a plate.
  4. Fold a thinly sliced piece of salmon in two or three and place on a cracker.
  5. Repeat the last step for all crackers.
  6. Using a teaspoon, spoon out a small portion of the cheese mixture.
  7. Using a second teaspoon, spoon out the cheese from the first spoon. Repeat this until you've formed a tiny football shaped portion of cheese mixture.
  8. Place the cheese portion on the salmon.
  9. Repeat until all crackers and salmon have cheese.
  10. Garnish the tops of the cheese with 1 inch lengths of chives. Enjoy!
