Made this exactly as specified, and serve it as part of a group of appetizers that ended up being a full meal. One of my guests absolutely loved it, although his wife and I thought the salmon was a little overpowering. If you're a smoked salmon lover, you definitely need to try this. It goes together in less than 10 minutes; the presentation is lovely.

You can make the salmon mixture up to a day in advance. Sprinkle with chopped parsley for a more finished look.
