This smoked salmon appetizer is simple to make.

It would be good as a first course for a dinner party or as part of a buffet or drinks party.

The mustard sauce is a delightful mixture of hot, sweet and fresh.

You could use it as a dip for lots of other occasions.

The preparation can be done in advance, just leaving the bread to toast and the appetizer to assemble before serving.

Buy as much smoked salmon as you can afford - the minimum is a slice per toast round.

Smoked Salmon Starter

4 slices crusty bread - toasted
4 smoked salmon slices
4 teaspoons capers
Salad leaves, chopped onion, diced cucumber
1 lemon

Mustard Sauce
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
handful fresh dill - chopped

Whisk together all the mustard sauce ingredients except the dill.

Toast the bread and put each onto a serving plate with some prepared salad.

Lay the smoked salmon on top - you can be as generous as you like with it.

Season with a few twists of black pepper and some lemon squeezed over.

Give the mustard sauce a good mix and pour over.

Scatter a spoon of capers over the top.

Drizzle a spoonful of mustard sauce over and sprinkle the chopped onion and dill on top.

Put a lemon wedge on each plate.

Serve any extra sauce (there will be some) so people can help themselves.
