Seven Layer Salmon Bites

Recipe yields 48 “bites” to serve with Champagne, white wine or martinis. You can also make this recipe as a luxurious smoked salmon sandwich instead of as hors d’oeuvres (instructions below).


  • 10 ounces whipped cream cheese

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest

  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 6 slices, 6- by 5-inches, pumpernickel sandwich bread
    (about 1/3-inch thick slices—not the thin dark pumpernickel
    squares or rectangles, which are too tangy for the delicate caviar)

  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced Scottish smoked salmon

  • 1/4 cup salmon roe (2 ounces)


  1. Stir together cream cheese, zest, lemon juice, chives, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

  2. Stack bread slices, then trim to form 4-1/4 by 3-1/4-inch rectangles. Arrange rectangles in 1 layer. Spread each with 1 heaping tablespoon cheese mixture and top with a thin layer of smoked salmon (cut to fit with kitchen shears).

  3. Make 1 more layer each of cheese and salmon, then top with remaining cheese. Trim edges to make uniform and chill rectangles on a platter until tops are firm, about 1 hour.

  4. Cut rectangles into 8 (1-1/2 by 1-inch) pieces, then top each piece with a rounded 1/4 teaspoon roe.

To make as Smoked Salmon & Caviar Sandwiches

  1. Stir together cream cheese, zest, lemon juice, chives, salt and pepper in a small bowl (same step as above).
  2. Spread cheese mixture on all 6 slices of bread.
  3. Top 3 slices of bread with a layer of smoked salmon. Divide caviar among the slices.
  4. Top with the remaining bread slices. Cut each sandwich in half and serve.
