1 pig shaped cutter

8 ounces cold smoked salmon fillet

4 ounces wasabi caviar

Black sesame seeds


  1. Put butter, lemon zest and capers in food processor until well combined. Cut 16 pieces of bread with the cutter and cover, to keep bread moist. Cut 16 salmon pig shapes with the cutter.

Place 1 black sesame seed onto the pig to make the eye.
