Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Appetizer Recipe

This easy appetizer recipe looks impressive but only takes minutes to prepare. Tender asparagus and smoked salmon are a perfect match. Serve a larger portion for a light lunch.

Ingredients

  • 12 asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 4 oz smoked salmon, thinly sliced
  • Lettuce leaves, parsley, cherry tomatoes (garnish)

  • 1 green onion, sliced thinly
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a steamer or a colander set over boiling water, steam the asparagus until just tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

  3. Wrap three spears of asparagus in one ounce of salmon. Repeat.
  4. Arrange on asparagus on lettuce-lined plate and garnish with cherry tomatoes and parsley. Serve with mustard sauce on the side.
