This salmon toast is for those days when you feel a bit hungry and you need something light and easy. The combination of soft salmon with toasted bread makes two great contrasting textures that no one can deny. However, adding a bit of homemade pesto, some lemon and spices top it all off to a fantastic party for your taste buds. If you happen to have some leftover salmon from dinner this is also a good alternative to make with the leftovers. Just make sure the fish is not overcooked. A silky salmon is all that is important for the right touch of this dish. So let me show you how to make this simple and nice dish.
