Smoked Salmon Toasts with Crème Fraîche Sauce

Recipe from

Real Simple


1 1/2 cups crème frîche or sour cream
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 loaf thinly sliced white or wheat sandwich bread
2 small shallots, peeled and halved
1 pound smoked salmon, thinly sliced
2 lemons, cut into wedges


In a small bowl, combine the crème fraîche, mustard, dill, and salt. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.

Heat broiler on high. Arrange the bread on 2 baking sheets. Broil until lightly toasted, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove from oven. Rub 1 side of each toast with the cut side of a shallot. Cut each piece of toast on the diagonal twice to form 4 triangles. Top each triangle with a slice of salmon and a dollop of the crème fraîche mixture. Serve the lemon wedges on the side.
