Party prep should never get in the way of celebrating the holidays they commemorate. That’s why we’ve put together a list of five deliciously simple ways to use your seafood box come Easter Sunday, so you’re not stuck in the kitchen and can focus on what matters.
Brown Butter Salmon Rillettes
When we first made these Brown Butter Salmon Rillettes in our test kitchen, they barely lasted long enough to photograph. The perfect mix of elegance and simplicity, this dip is a surefire hit at your Easter lunch. Serve with toasted bagels for an elegant brunch or baguette slices or crackers for an excellent appetizer.
Smoked Salmon and Leek Quiche
A flaky pie crust with a rich, custardy filling is a must-have at brunch (and especially at any holiday brunch). This version is decadent but sophisticated, thanks to the smoky salmon flavor and subtle spring flavor of leek.
