Smoked Salmon Cucumber Canapes

Salmon is one of the best sources of omega - 3 fatty acids, which combat inflammation in the body.  Omega 3s also have a ton of other great benefits, including fighting obesity and managing blood sugar.  And ladies, when you feel a mood swing coming on, reach for some salmon to release a ton of tryptophan.  This is one of our favorite weekend snacks!  And I always say it, but the best for you is Wild - Caught Alaskan.
Cucumbers are a great complex carb which gives you energy, and will help you feel fuller longer.  As often as possible, I try to eat a complex carb with a lean protein at every meal.  In these canapes, I used a delicatessen style mustard with white wine.  This little condiment with those powerful, antioxidant mustard seeds is another great thing for the body! 

Ingredients:
  • 1 package Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon
  • Delicatessen style mustard with white wine
  • Non - pareil Capers
  • English cucumber
Directions:
  1. Partially peel, then slice the cucumber.
  2. Dab some mustard on the cucumber.
  3. Tear a few small pieces of salmon, then layer on top.
  4. Find a place to put the capers on where the mustard can help keep it glued on.
