Smoked Salmon Wasabi Tea Sandwiches

Lynne Eppel | Delicious Living

Makes 24 / Enjoy with a simple green tea, or herbal honeybush, peach, or apricot tea. These sandwiches can be made up to two hours ahead; refrigerate, covered with damp paper towels, to keep the bread moist. Look for wasabi (horseradish) powder in your market’s Asian foods section.

  1. In a medium bowl, mix wasabi powder with water to form a paste. Add cream cheese, lemon juice, zest, and capers. Beat with an electric mixer until well combined.
  2. Place bread slices on a work surface. Spread each slice with wasabi cream cheese, dividing equally. Top six bread slices with smoked salmon, dividing equally. Sprinkle basil and chives over salmon. Top with remaining bread slices, cheese-side down. Cut each sandwich into four triangles.
