I thought the time was right to share my very favorite Thanksgiving hors d’oeuvre—one that does double duty as a chic little snack year round. You are going to pinch yourself they’re so easy: Salmon Chips with Crème Fraiche & Chives. I love these for Thanksgiving because they take two seconds to assemble and salmon isn’t likely to be repeated at the holiday table but does go very well with a glass of lemony Prosecco to kick off the meal.
6 slices smoked salmon
12 ruffled potato chips
2 tablespoons crème fraîche
In a bowl, mix crème fraiche with lemon zest, to taste (personally I am pretty liberal with the lemon zest to balance the richness of the salmon). Cut smoked salmon slices in half. Top each potato chip with a piece of smoked salmon, a dollop of crème fraîche mixture and sprinkle with chopped chives.
