2. Smoked Salmon and Cheese Lollipops

We will need a package of buns, smoked salmon, a tub of cheese for spread, a few sprigs of fresh dill, and pickled apples to prepare them. We start by mixing the dill with the cheese spread. Next, peel the apple and cut it into small cubes, adding the cheese. Finally, we put the mixture on a strip of salmon and wrapped each stick with smoked salmon.

3. Cubes of Cold Smoked Salmon Battered on a Sesame

Make squares with your smoked salmon, and roll them in sesame seeds. You can accompany them with a bit of olive oil and lime juice. They are outstanding.
