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.
