Potato-Smoked Salmon Crostini

This clever crostini uses a crispy potato half as a base rather than toast. Mary Ellen Carroll and Donna Wingate cooked the potatoes in a portable deep fryer in a makeshift kitchen at the ICA site, but oven-frying the potatoes works equally well.

  • 1 pound small fingerling potatoes, scrubbed and halved lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon capers, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon drained prepared horseradish
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon, cut into 1 1/2-inch strips


How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the potatoes with the oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast, cut side down, for 15 minutes. Using a spatula, turn the potatoes and roast them for about 15 minutes longer, or until golden and crisp. Drain the potatoes on paper towels.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, blend the cràme fraîche with the dill, capers and horseradish; season with salt and pepper.
  3. To assemble the crostini, top each potato half with a smoked salmon strip and a dollop of sauce. Arrange the crostini on a platter and serve.

Make Ahead

The crème fraîche sauce can be refrigerated overnight. Let warm to room temperature before serving.

Suggested Pairing

Adrian Chalk of Lauber Imports, a friend of the Itinerant Gastronomy artists, began with sparkling Prosecco, to pair with these crunchy, salty crostini.
