Sometimes big flavor comes in small bites. Smoked Trout Cucumber Rounds are no exception to that rule. Make-ahead: prepare these cool cucumber bites and chill overnight for the perfect next day finger-food appetizer.
Yield: 16 pieces (serving size: 2 pieces)
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together cream cheese, milk, horseradish, lemon zest and juice. Gently fold in trout, chopped scallions and dill. Season lightly with pepper. (Spread can be made 1 day ahead; cover and refrigerate. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.)
2. Spread 1 tsp. trout mixture over each cucumber round. Garnish with sliced scallions and lemon zest, if desired, and serve.
