A quick appetizer
Crackers are a must when it comes to a good appetizer spread. Whether you're making a Mediterranean mezze platter or a light appetizer board for summer, you need some good crackers or pita chips.
Now pair that good quality cracker with some mashed avocados, goat cheese and salmon and you'll have a delicious appetizer. These easy salmon avocado bites are perfect for gatherings and parties and is ready in just 15 minutes.
- Cheese: I used plain goat cheese this time but I've also tried this recipe with herbed goat cheese and cream cheese and both work well.
- Avocado: Make sure your avocado is soft and ripe. You can also use packaged avocado spread instead of fresh avocado.
- Smoked salmon: You can use lox or flaky smoked salmon.
- Crackers: The crackers used for this recipe should be thick enough to hold the avocado and salmon.
Mix the goat cheese with red onions and parsley. Mash the avocado and season with salt and pepper.
Spread some goat cheese on the crackers and top with avocado mash and smoked salmon. This recipe yields 20-25 salmon avocado bites.
These salmon avocado bites are simple yet so delicious. Here are a few variations you can use to jazz up this combination:
- Top the bites with everything but the bagel seasoning.
- Add fresh dill to the goat cheese.
- Mix some chopped jalapenos with the avocados for more spiciness.
Frequently asked questions
It's best to make these avocado bites right before serving because the crackers would stay crisp and the avocado won't turn brown.
Absolutely. This recipe would be just as delicious without the onions.
You can use cream cheese (plain or flavored) or even soft cheese such as brie or camembert.

My oldest is crazy about salmon and avocado such rolls, but I'm not sushi expert at home! He is going to love this recipe! It has everything he loves about his favorite sushi on a simple cracker. This would make a great appetizer as well. Thanks!
That's a great combination of flavors! We all loved it.
Cream cheese, smoked salmon and avocado are some of my favourite food combos, and served as an appetiser like this... yum!
These were so easy to put together and went over really well when we had some friends over recently.
Made these and used some pickled red onion I had on hand - such an easy and tasty little bite!

I am a savory topping person! 😀 I made mine with grilled shrimp, but will GLADLY swap with these! Those Triscuit crackers are definitely addictive. I love that you used salmon!
