Smoked Salmon and Crab Pockets Recipe

by Gourmet Food World
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".

Smoked Salmon and Crab Pockets Recipe Instructions


  • 6 slices (about 3 oz.) smoked salmon
  • 6 Long chives (plus some extra)
  • ½ cup cooked crab meat, chopped small
  • 1 celery stick, chopped small (chop in very small pieces)
  • 2 tbsp. cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 tbsp. chopped dill
  • 1 tbsp. tobico or capelin caviar for garnish
  • Salt and pepper


  1. In a medium bowl combine crabmeat, celery, cream cheese, sour cream and dill. Mix, season with salt and pepper and reserve.
  2. Lay out the slices of smoked salmon flat on a board. Add 1 tbsp. of the crabmeat mix in the center of each slice. Gather the edges of the smoked salmon together to form a packet and use a long piece of chive to tie it closed.
  3. Garnish with a tsp. of tobico caviar on top and serve.
