Lox Smoked Salmon Bruschetta

Ingredients

1 loaf french or sourdough bread 
Strawberry cream cheese
4 slices, SeaBear smoked salmon
1 sprig of basil (or Thai basil)
 

Instructions

Spread the bread that you have chosen with the strawberry cream cheese and then layer the nova-style smoked salmon on top of it. 

Chiffonnade (finely slice) the basil on top and place in a plate and heat in the oven for approximately 3-5 minutes.

Before serving, slice the bread diagonally into two pieces and place a tiny sprig of basil on top with a halved strawberry.

I hope you enjoy this West coast style of smoked salmon bruschetta, I know I sure do and it's great for parties. 

Tip: For an added extra zing, try adding a touch of either balsamic or strawberry vinegar to the cream cheese.
