Need a tasty, gluten-free, and protein-rich recipe for your next party? Smoked salmon potato rounds are the perfect fix! This delicious appetizer recipe is a twist on potato skins made with thinly sliced roasted potato slices topped with a creamy yogurt chive sauce, wild-caught smoked salmon, and capers. These potato rounds are a perfect healthy Superbowl appetizer or elegant, bite-sized, snack for your next gathering.
I recommend serving them immediately for the best taste and texture of the potatoes. Go for wild-caught smoked salmon, it has fewer calories than farmed salmon (about 32%!), more calcium, iron, potassium, and less sodium. Farmed fish also packs three times more saturated fat as wild salmon, so go wild!! You can also find this recipe featured on IdahoPotato.com.
How To Make Smoked Salmon Potato Rounds
First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare the potatoes by washing, patting dry, slicing, and tossing with olive oil. Place potatoes onto a baking sheet with a Silpat mat or parchment paper, season with salt and pepper, and bake for 15 minutes.
Flip potatoes and bake for 10 minutes more on the other side. Set potatoes aside to cool while you prepare the yogurt sauce.
Whisk together yogurt, dill, lemon zest, softened cream cheese, and salt.
Top the potato rounds with a dollop of yogurt dill sauce.
Finish with salmon, capers, and fresh sprigs of dill. Serve immediately.
