fresh dill or parsley for garnish – optional
Preheat the oven to a 350°F and prepare a nonstick baking sheet.
Melt 4 tbsp unsalted butter. Slice 1 long French baguette into 1/3-inch thick slices. (You should get about 25-30 slices). Brush bread with melted butter and toast for 5-7 minutes or until edges are just barely starting to turn golden. Bread should be still soft in the center.
While bread is cooling, make the avocado spread. In a medium bowl, place 2 medium avocados (pitted and peeled). Mash them with a fork, pastry cutter or potato masher (works the best).
To the bowl, add 1/4 tsp fine salt, 1/8 tsp ground black pepper and 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice. Stir to combine.
Spread about 1 tsp of the avocado spread over each bread slice. Top with a generous piece of salmon and garnish with fresh dill or parsley.
Serve right away or tightly cover with plastic food wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve within the next couple hours.
These are few tips that will help slow down the process. From personal experience, with these tips, avocado appetizers can last up to 4 hours before they slowly start changing the color.
