If you can find some fior di latte/fresh mozzarella in a sheet form, layer it with rockets, then smoked salmon slices, roll it up and slice, to make pinwheels. Looks great just as it tastes great!

Make some crêpes. Spread on cream cheese. Then add a few tasty slices of Smoked Salmon. Sprinkle a little chopped cucumber, caper and onion on top, with a little parsley. Roll up , then slice into bite-sized pieces.

Boil some new potatoes until barely cooked. Remove, allow to cool a bit, then scoop out a hole in the top. Stuff with smoked salmon mixed with cream cheese and dill.

a million and six ideas come to mind off the bat...I personally love it with just some crumbled hard boiled egg, razor thin red onion, either goats cheese or cream cheese depending on the mood, all on a toasted crostini.

Shaffer's Salmon dip

1 pound smoked salmon
1 pound cream cheese
1 pound sour cream
1.5 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon tabasco sauce ( I sometimes use a little more)
2 tablespoons Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions ( I sometimes use more)
1/2 cup finely chopped red peppers ( I always use a little more)
1 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all the above together and chill. It makes a very pretty dip.
It is wonderful on crusty French bread.

smoked salmon mousse - blend the salmon with cream cheese and lemon zest in a food processor. Add fresh cracked black pepper and a little heavy cream if necessary.

Pipe into hollowed out cherry tomatoes, or onto pumpernickle bread slices, or into phyllo cups.

If you can find some large sea shell pasta, cook then drain set aside..In sauce pan heat some butter and add about 1/2 c of fresh salmon..cook about 4 min then add some sour cream and shopped fresh dill..Season with salt and pepper and spoon into the cooked shells...I place a small piece of the feathery tip of the dill in the salmon mix to kind of fancy up the shell You could do this with the smoked slamon, mix it with cream cheese, a little minced red onion, and some lemon and dill and stuff the shells.
