Fish and Chips with Smoked Salmon
For a fun and tasty appetizer or finger food, this is a cute little twist on the term ‘fish and chips’ that uses smoked salmon as the fish and packaged potato chips.
It’s elegant enough to be served at a special event or fancy picnic but my kids thought it was just super funny and ate them all up.
The hardest part about preparing fish and chips with smoked salmon is finding and then keeping the potato chips in one piece. The cream cheese in the photos is piped as this is a quick way to do a lot, but when camping or doing a few for just us we simply dollop on with a spoon.
1 large bag plain chips
1 100g (3.5 oz) packet smoked salmon
100g (3.5 oz) cream cheese, at room temperature
dill, to garnish
piping bag and nozzle, optional
Sort through the bag of chips laying out the whole chips on a platter.
Slice the salmon into thin strips of a suitable size to fold and put on the chips.
When all the salmon is positioned, top with the cream cheese and a small piece of dill. Serve immediately.
Option 1: Use two teaspoons to dollop. One to scoop, then one to push off onto the salmon.
Option 2: Use a piping bag filled with softened and mixed/whipped cream cheese to quickly pipe on the cream cheese.
