Smoked Salmon and Crab Pockets Recipe

This is definitely one of our favorite smoked salmon appetizers: it's delicious, it's easy and it's so impressive on the plate! Buttery smoked salmon pockets are filled with meaty and succulent king crab meat, beautifully seasoned, and prettily tied up with a piece of chive "string".
