Charcuterie boards are an entertainer’s best friend! They’re simple to make, require minimal cooking, and they’re flexible, allowing you to incorporate many ingredients you already have. Use our Canadian Seafood board as a template or to inspire your custom creation.
Wash and prepare fresh mussels and cook as desired. (See our “Weeknight Bistro-Style Moules et Frites1” recipe for inspiration.)
Prepare deviled eggs if making your own. Alternatively, purchase a pre-made platter from your local grocery store.
Top each deviled egg with a smoked mussel.
Transfer steamed mussels to a bowl and place on the serving board.
Place other items in bowls (pickled onions, wakame salad, remaining smoked mussels) randomly around the board.
Place smoked salmon, lox, and deviled eggs in larger open areas of the board.
Fill in gaps with crackers, nori, fruit, and vegetables.
Add parsley bunches to cover any remaining areas.
Sprinkle capers and dill over lox.
Tip: Any smoked fish may be used in place of salmon.
Tip: Food quantities can be adjusted up or down to suit the size of the event.
Tip: Have cocktail forks and/or toothpicks available for serving.
