Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon dried garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon dried onion
  • ¾ Teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 16-ounce box Mrs. T's Four Cheese Medley Pierogies
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 Ounces cream cheese or creme fraiche
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 4 Ounces smoked salmon

Directions

In a small bowl mix together the poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic, onion and salt. Set aside.

Bring two quarts of water to a boil. Add the frozen pierogies and heat until they float, 5 to 7 minutes; drain. Set aside.

In a large skillet, sauté the pierogies in butter. Turn occasionally. When the pierogies begin to brown, sprinkle evenly with the seasoning mixture. Continue sautéing until the pierogies are golden brown and crispy on the outside, 8 to 10 minutes. Reserve the pierogies.

In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese and water. Heat in a microwave for 20 seconds on medium-high then whisk. Repeat as needed until the mixture is warm, smooth, and saucy. Top the pierogies with cream cheese and smoked salmon. Serve immediately.

Smoked Salmon Shopping Tip

Stocking up on no-cook items like cheese, nuts, olives, crackers, and dips will cut down on prep time and help ensure you have enough food for any unexpected guests.

Smoked Salmon Cooking Tip

When preparing appetizers try to avoid repetition of similar foods and flavors - aim for variety in textures, colors, and cooking methods.

Smoked Salmon Wine Pairing

Pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, albariño, or rosé with most cooked salmon dishes; pinot noir with salmon in red wine or other strong sauce; grüner veltliner, rosé, or vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with smoked salmon.
