What I’m listening to: A Pandora holiday station (at the moment it’s playing Nat King Cole)
This last weekend, Pastor Alaska and I hosted a Christmas dinner for our church board and spouses. I will be sharing some of the recipes I made for that event over the next couple of weeks. The first are these Smoked Salmon Deviled Egg appetizers.
Many of the gatherings I’ve attended since moving to Alaska have included some sort of smoked salmon, often a variation on smoked salmon dip, which is a tasty spread for crackers. I wanted to continue with that tradition on the one hand, but also try something new, something I hadn’t seen on the other. These were just the thing I was looking for. They were a big hit at the dinner party. I especially loved the fresh chive and a squeeze of lemon against the rich smokiness of the filling. And, if you have some filling leftover after finishing all the eggs (you most likely will), save it to spread on crackers.
