Easy Smoked Salmon Appetizer: Potato Bites

Modeled after my favorite appetizer from Wolfgang Puck's restaurant, this easy smoked salmon appetizer will be a hit at any party.


  • 48 tater tots, thawed
  • 4 oz smoked salmon
  • 1/2 lemon, squeezed
  • 2 tbsp sliced green onion
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • sour cream or plain greek yogurt


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees*
  • Shred the smoked salmon with a fork.
  • Combine the salmon in a bowl with lemon juice, green onion, and capers. Set aside.
  • Lightly grease the cups of a mini muffin tin.
  • Press two tater tots into each cup. This works best if you use a round spoon or another object to smush the tater tots into the tin.
  • Bake according to package instructions, or until the tater tots are golden brown and crispy around the edges.
  • Remove the tater tots from the oven, and use the spoon to push into the center of the cooked tater tots once again, creating a "cup" shape.
  • Top each cup with the salmon mixture and a small dollop of sour cream or plain greek yogurt.
  • Serve immediately.
