Smoked Whitefish Crostini

The flavors of these crostini are truly classic - smoked fish, dill, creme fraiche and capers. However, for visual purposes, I love using caper berries for these - you can generally find them in the grocery store right next to the regular capers. I like to serve these up on small slices of baguette, but I season the crostini with sesame and poppy seeds. It makes it taste like an everything bagel!

This is a great sophisticated little bite to serve up at any cocktail party. They pair well with a fizzy and refreshing cocktail, like lemon-thyme Prosecco.
