Smoked Salmon Balls

This is my smoked salmon experiment.  I love things bite-sized, and I love having friends over for hors d'oeuvres, but I find that most things meant to be eaten on one bite often come on crostini.  While I do indulge occasionally in a perfectly toasted, thinly sliced sourdough crostini, I can't eat them frequently.

I had some smoked salmon, and while part of me wanted to go buy a bagel and cream cheese, I thought I'd try to take that flavor profile and modify it a bit.  Both were good, but I think the winner was the stuffed tomatoes.  The sesame seeds have a very strong flavor that was almost overwhelming to the salmon (but it was great texture!).

I pulsed the smoked salmon with capers, red onion, italian parsley, salt & pepper, and a tiny bit of olive oil.  Half of the mixture I stuffed into hollowed out cherry tomato halves, and the other half of the salmon I rolled into balls then coated with sesame seeds. 

If you eat dairy, these are delicious with a tiny bit of greek of yogurt.

I just made this tonight and it was so good! My husband loves smoked salmon, so I was excited to give this a try and we were not disappointed (as usual) Even though the chopping is time consuming, I love the recipes with lots of fresh veggies in it! Thanks for another great dinner, you’re the best!!!
