This simple potted spread takes only a few minutes to put together, yet looks as impressive as it tastes. Instead of using a microwave, you can also cook the salmon in a little oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup butter melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped capers
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 6 oz smoked trout skinned
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
Garlic Chips and Crostini:
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 baguette thinly sliced

Method

Garlic Chips and Crostini: In small saucepan, heat oil over medium-low heat; fry garlic until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon to paper towel–lined plate.

Brush 1 side of baguette slices with oil from pan; place on baking sheet. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven, turning once, until golden, about 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 4 days.)

Sprinkle salmon with salt; microwave on high until fish flakes easily when tested with fork, about 2 minutes. Pat dry with paper towel.

In bowl, stir butter with oil; stir in green onion, capers, parsley and lemon juice. Flake salmon and trout; stir into butter mixture along with pepper and paprika.

Scrape into serving dish; cover and chill for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.) Serve on crostini topped with garlic chips.
