Finger Food!

With all the festivities coming up it's very important to have some quick and easy recipes so you can entertain your guests!!...
We had my Chaparrito's Bday Party a couple of weeks ago and I decided that instead of cooking lots of food I was going to do something simple and tiny, but yummy at the same time..

A couple of friends also brought some yummy creations!!... They owe me the recipes!! Mike I want that pork recipe ASAP!... hahahaha ... Anyways .. knowing some of you have probably lots of Christmas parties coming up, I will share with you a couple of recipes so you can make finger food a real delight!..

Smoked Salmon on a cracker


16 slices of smoked salmon
1/2 cup of cream cheese or goat's cheese
1 tbsp of mustard or if using goat's cheese you can use a tbsp of honey
2 green onions (thinly sliced)


On your work surface lay out an approx. 45 x 30 cm plastic wrap and on top of it overlap the salmon slices to form a rectangle.

On a food processor toss the remaining smoked salmon, cheese, mustard, green onions and puree until smooth. Spread the mixture in an even layer on top of the smoked salmon slices.

Roll the smoked salmon into a tight log similar as making a roll of sushi. Use the plastic wrap to help you roll the salmon tightly. Pinch the plastic wrap on both ends and then roll the log until it tightens and forms a cylinder.

Freeze for a couple of hours to help it firm. When it's firm enough to cut, slice it into even rounds and place each one on top of the cracker.

And voilĂ !


  1. This sounds perfect for the second day of Christmas with some nice wine. By then everyone will be fed up with turkey and such!
    Are you baking any cookies for Christmas? I'm only just starting and want to make these mexican wedding cookies:
    What I wanted to ask you is whether they were authentic??
