No. 1 : Quick Recipe
Smoked Trout Rice Crisps
- 1 Pkg (3.5 oz) Rice Crackers
- ¼ Cup Olive or Avocado Oil Mayonnaise
- ¼ Cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
- 2 TB Dill, chopped
- 1 TB Whole Grain Mustard
- ¼ tsp EACH Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper
- 4 oz Smoked Trout
- Dill Sprigs for Garnish
To make the creamy topping, stir together in a medium sized bowl the mayonnaise, yogurt, dill, mustard, salt and pepper. Place small dollop of the mixture on a rice cracker. Top with a slice of smoked trout and garnish with a dill sprig.
This is a great make-ahead recipe! Assemble all your ingredients and make your topping ahead of time – it will keep in the fridge for 2 or 3 days – you can even slice the trout. Right before serving, dollop the crackers with the creamy topping and place the trout on it. Garnish with the dill.
No. 2 : Kitchen SCOOP
Rice Crackers are one of my pantry staples. Crunchy and crispy crackers are a super contrast to creamy soft dips. Not only are they a good vehicle to serve up an appetizer, but they also crunch up easily to make a topping or substitute for bread crumbs when I’m cooking for gluten free friends.
No. 3 : Clever Idea
Whip up this yogurt topping and keep it in your fridge for a couple of days. It works well with smoked salmon, too. Makes a super sandwich spread or bagel smear or mash it with egg whites to make a yummy and unique deviled egg.

Borsao Garnacha Rosado
Yes! A yummy and light rosé like this one is a great accompaniment to holiday appetizers and small plates. Made from 100% Grenache this rosé is fermented in stainless steel and sees no oak aging, preserving the vibrantly fruit forward characteristics of the wine. Did you know that grenache is one of the most widely planted of the red varietals in the world? In Spain it is called Garnacha and makes a lightly colored berry-forward and slightly spicy-flavored wine that’s excellent with smoked fish and meats and cheeses. – a good answer to what to serve with appetizers like this one.
