  • 8 small slices (1/4 inch thick) pumpernickel bread
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, with beets or plain
  • 4 ounces smoked-trout fillets, pin bones and skin removed, fillets flaked into large pieces
  • 16 small sprigs dill
  • 1 lemon


  1. Cut each slice of bread on the diagonal in half. Spread one side of each with butter, then with horseradish. Top each with a piece of trout and a sprig of dill. Cover with plastic wrap, and set aside until ready to serve (up to 2 hours). Before serving, squeeze lemon juice over tops.
