  • 2 oz smoked salmon flaked into small pieces
  • 4 oz chive and onion cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup arugula chopped
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped dill plus additional for garnish
  • good pinch kosher salt
  • good pinch fresh cracked pepper
  • ¾ cup shredded white cheddar or fontina cheese
  • 2 boxes mini filo tart shells (30 shells total)


  • Heat oven to 400F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, salmon, arugula, egg, dill, salt, and pepper. Using a fork helps.
  • Spoon the salmon mixture into the filo shells on a bake sheet. Top each with a bit of cheese.
  • Bake at 400F for ~15 minutes or until cooked through and a little sizzly.
  • Serve garnished with a little fresh dill. Yields 30 appetizers.


See my writing text above in the body of the post if you would like to substitute out the chive and onion cream cheese or smoked salmon.
