Salmon Appetizers with Blueberry Hats

Salmon Appetizers with Blueberry Hats are beautifully simple. Baked salmon bites topped with a blueberry and basil.

Salmon Appetizers with Blueberry Hats is the easiest appetizer I have ever made. I opened my fridge and other than basic condiments, milk, eggs and butter, the only foods taking space on the shelves were leftover salmon and fresh blueberries. What is a food-blogger to do?

Whether it was inspiration or desperation, I’ll never know, but Salmon Appetizers with Blueberry Hats was born and the result was delicious, healthy and cute.  I thought they were adorable. As I have written before, I’m a sucker for anything cute or little. Check out my Turkey Parmesan Sliders for proof.

My plate was brimming with salmon appetizers when I sat down to eat and to watch the Kentucky Derby.  Each time I looked from plate to TV, there was a screen full of women wearing their gorgeous hats and, low and behold, the blueberries with their basil leaf feathers propped on top reminded me of tiny Kentucky Derby Hats.
