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.

Garlic Chips and Crostini:
MethodGarlic 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.

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.
