Mascarpone & Smoked Salmon Crostini

I just finished watching Wolf of Wall Street and must say it was amazing. Although the movie  was quite lengthy and took us two nights to watch, it was worth every moment. I am now even more upset with the Academy Awards. Leonardo DiCaprio was incredible in it. How does he not have an Oscar yet?!

The movie was responsible for the lack of dinner. I wanted to make something quick and easy so that we can finish watching it and these crostini did just that. I’m making them again on Sunday for a dinner party we’re hosting, except they’ll actually make appetizers as they should be.

Mascarpone & Smoked Salmon Crostini

My love for smoked salmon goes back, way back. It is an item you’ll find in our fridge on a regular basis. This is my favorite way of having it. Mascarpone is a lighter less savory version of cream cheese and it works magic on this crostini. The clean, airy taste of it doesn’t overpower the salmon, instead it lets the flavors to be fully savored.

Doesn’t it make for a beautiful dish?

    Oooh wee this looks delicious Kathy! I’m kind of obsessed with smoked salmon. They have a great one at Costco that isn’t a million dollars. I’m growing dill in my herb garden, and as soon as it’s big enough I’ll have to make this.

    And I *loved* Wolf of Wallstreet!

    We just watched that movie over the weekend. It was really long!! I had to break it up into two days because we started it so late and I couldn’t stay awake. But Leonardo DiCaprio is an amazing actor. I love just about everything he has been in.
    This crostini looks so fantastic. Very beautiful colors and prefect for the season. 😀
