cream cheese & dill
Start by spreading the cream cheese, then follow with the salmon. Dress each piece with desired amount of dill and capers. Assemble all pieces on a tray and squirt with fresh lemon just before serving. This recipe is also great with anchovies or bay shrimp in place of the smoked salmon.

*You can find roasted red pepper in a jar in the condiment aisle of most grocery stores. Or you can buy a fresh pepper and roast it by placing it on a cookie sheet and popping it in the oven at 475F. Roast for about 10 -15 minutes, or until the skin looks charred. Once it's cool to the touch, the skin should peel off easily under cold running water.
