Smoked Salmon Crostini

Updated: Friday, February 7 2014, 12:35 PM EST
Servings: About 20, with 2 crostini per person

INGREDIENTS:
1 Tablespoon Kroger Unsalted Butter
2 medium Sweet Onions, cut into thin julienne slices
1 Private Selection Baguette
1 batch    Hummus Recipe
2 packages Private Selection Smoked Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
6 oz. Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, finely grated (about 1 cup)
2 teaspoons Lemon Juice, fresh
2 teaspoons Lemon Zest, fresh
1 jar Capers, drained

HUMMUS INGREDIENTS:
1 can (approx. 15 oz.) Chick Peas, drained and rinsed
1 package Mukimame (Shelled Edamame) Beans, frozen, thawed
1 teaspoon Garlic, fresh, minced
1/4 cup Lemon Juice, fresh
3 tablespoons Tahini Paste
1 teaspoon Cumin, ground 
1/4 cup Plain Yogurt, fat free
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
To taste Sea Salt
 
DIRECTIONS:
Make Caramelized Onions: Melt the butter in a large, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and start to caramelize, allowing the onions set in the pan until lightly brown before stirring. This allows the natural sugar to come out in the onions and should take about 12-15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool

Make Hummus: In a food processor, puree the Chick Peas and Mukimame until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until thoroughly combined. Put mixture in a bowl, refrigerate until needed for assembling appetizers.

Assemble and serve: Preheat oven to 375° F for 15 minutes. Position rack near bottom of oven.

Slice baguette into ¼” rounds. On a heavy baking sheet pan, toast baguette rounds for about 5 to 7 minutes, until lightly browned, be careful not to burn the bread.
 
Once cooled, spread each baguette slice with 1 teaspoon of hummus per slice, and layer with a crostini-sized piece of Smoked Salmon. Scatter caramelized onions over Salmon, followed by about 1/2 teaspoon of grated cheese.

Transfer baguettes back to the baking sheet and bake until cheese has melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

Arrange crostini on a platter and sprinkle with lemon juice and serve.
