INGREDIENTS

10 ounces of the best quality smoked salmon in medium-thin slices (Norwegian or Wild Alaskan)

2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature

1 tablespoon lemon zest

3 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup finely chopped chives or green onions

1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped

1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 thin, long french baguette, cut into 1/4-inch slices

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place bread slices on baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden and crispy. Let cool.

Mix butter, lemon juice and zest, chives, mustard, dill, salt and pepper in a bowl until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Bring to room temperature before using.

Spread a thick layer of the mustard-chive butter on each piece of toast and place a slice of smoked salmon on top. Arrange on a plate or tray and serve.
