This was the probably the most dissappointing appetizer I have ever made. We followed the recipe diligently and it was very underwhelming. We had 24 guests and these were hardly even touched. Normally our guests rave about the dishes we serve, but not this one. I wouldn't even guess as to where to begin making this more palatable.
Smoked Salmon Crostini

I'm surprised at the previous rating. I've made this appetizer many times, sometimes with cold-smoked salmon and sometimes with regular smoked salmon. It tastes so fresh and healthy and always gets raves. Don't leave out the fennel - it makes the dish. My local market carries pre-baked crostini slices (near the deli section with the specialty breads) and that's a time saver if you don't want to toast baguette slices, although probably a bit higher in calories.

I agree that this appetizer is outstanding. The fennel and dill make the dish. If there's any left when we get home, we consider ourselves lucky. We usually serve it on crostini, but the leftovers are great on crackers too.
