Goat Cheese Smoked Salmon Puff Pastry Bites are an elegant and impressive appetizer perfect for entertaining. They’re even better when paired with some bubbly!
I love entertaining. It’s no surprise I love to cook, but I especially adore cooking for family and friends. Any excuse to entertain is a good one in my book.
I know entertaining can stress a lot of people out. But over the years, I’ve learned how to entertain without wanting to have a panic attack.
Simple, seasonal food is always best. When you concentrate on fresh ingredients, minimal preparation, and balanced flavor profiles, you set yourself up for a successful and easy get-together. Entertaining should be about spending time with your company, not spending the entire time in the kitchen.
That’s why I really love these Goat Cheese Smoked Salmon Puff Pastry Bites.
They look particularly impressive and elegant, are created with bold and complementary flavors, and are very easy to make.
Serving these little smoked salmon puff pastry bites often gets quite a few ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs,’ but they really are very simple to put together. These bites use frozen puff pastry, a herb-studded goat cheese mixture, and quality store-bought smoked salmon. Fresh dill, lemon, and capers tie it all together.
Sure, they take a little time to assemble, but they’re worth the extra bit of effort. I like to use a star-tip to pipe the goat cheese which makes for great presentation….
