Endive Leaves with Smoked Salmon
Barquettes d'endives au saumon fûmé
A Recipe From: Nord-Pas-de-Calais
This recipe will yield 30 "barquettes"

Skill Level: Easy
Serves: 10

In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, lemon juice and lemon peel together. Stir in chopped dill. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate. Separate endives into leaves. Pipe or spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoon of cheese mixture at the wide end of each endive leaf. Top with a piece of smoked salmon. Arrange in concentric circles on a round platter. Makes about 30 appetizers.

Sylvaine's tips
If you don't like dill, substitute chopped chives. Prepare the cheese mixture in advance and refrigerate so the flavors will blend.
