For the base of this smoked salmon appetizer recipe, you simply use gyoza skins, which are basically Japanese won tons. You should be able to find them in the refrigerated section of your supermarket. If you have a difficult time locating them, substitute round won ton wrappers.  The only “cooking” involved in this recipe is to bake the won ton wrappers to turn them into crispy bases for the topping.

Do I have to cook smoked salmon?

No, you do not have to cook smoked salmon. The smoking process cooks the salmon. You’ll find smoked salmon in your local market near the seafood section. It’s usually sold in sealed packaging.

The rest of the recipe is a piece of cake.  You’ll mix light cream cheese with red onion, capers, dill and lemon zest.  The cream cheese mixture is spread onto the crispy won tons, and then it’s topped with a piece of smoked salmon and sprinkled with chives to make it all pretty.  That’s it!

It can’t get much easier than this.  And they look so impressive too!
