FFF – Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

Well Dined | Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

The Secret Recipe Club may be over, but the Fantastical Food Fight is just beginning!  Instead of being assigned a blog, secret Santa style, we are given a theme (similar to the Improv Cooking Challenge that I also participate in).  For our first month, the theme was deviled eggs - yum!

I knew that I wanted to do a fun take, and while I looked at Caesar Salad, Curry, Mexican Street Corn, and Crab Rangoon variations, I was really drawn to a Smoked Salmon idea.  Filled with the flavors of a traditional Lox bagel, this twist is as delicious as it is pretty.

Salmon Pizzette

Here's an idea for you for a quick meal or party food - smoked salmon, creme fraiche, capers, and chives on naan bread.  Fast, easy, delicious, fun, but still elegant.

I actually made this two ways as sort of an experiment - one by heating the naan (on a pizza stone), then adding the toppings.

The second one I made by putting the ingredients (except for the chives) on first, then toasting it on the pizza stone.  I was surprised to find that I liked this version better!  I had never heated smoked salmon before, so I wasn't sure how it would turn out.  But the flavor became rich and buttery and all the ingredients melded together.

I like the idea of naan as a topping conveyor.  Small enough to be individually sized and already cooked, all you need to do is add toppings and heat.  I bet it would be super fun to set up a make-your-own-pizza night this way, and kids would love it!
