Salmon dill cucumber bites are easy to make and great for serving whether it is an elegant, holiday, or a casual occasion. These tasty treats take very little time to whip up, and they ideal for serving large crowds.
My favorite type of cucumber to use for this recipe is the hothouse or English cucumber; I love them because they are large and have few or no seeds. But any type will do; just make sure they really fresh.
Useful tips for picking fresh cucumbers are choosing crisp, firm cucumbers and avoiding those with soft and/or wrinkled tips. Additionally, if the cucumbers have a waxy residue, be sure to thoroughly rinse them, and remove most of the peel before using. On the other hand, gently scrub the vegetable to remove the coating.
Other seafood options to try are smoked trout, shrimp, and crab. These bites are just as delicious with different toppings like grape tomatoes or bacon. Why not try mixing a bit of tuna or creamy avocado into the cream cheese mix for a decadent delight.
Not only are these bites healthy, they are also Keto, and Low-Carb friendly! Additionally, they are great for quick snacks or easy appetizers that you can prepare ahead of time, try these creamy Salmon Dill Cucumber Bites.
