Smoked Salmon Cucumber/Mousse Hors d’Oeuvres

Ingredients:
•    Alaska Smokehouse 4oz smoked salmon, diced
•    2 tablespoons mayonnaise
•    2 tablespoons sour cream
•    1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
•    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
•    3 tablespoons heavy cream, chilled
•    4 thin slices pumpernickel bread
•    6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
•    1 English (hothouse) cucumber
•    Fresh dill sprigs
Procedure:
•    Using a metal blade, place the smoked salmon into your food processor blend until relatively smooth.
•    Add the mayonnaise and sour cream and continue to blend until the mixture is as smooth.
•    Add the chopped dill and pepper during the final few seconds.
•    Transfer your mixture to a bowl.
•    Cover and refrigerate.
•    Place the cream in a chilled bowl and whisk until soft peaks form.
•    Remove the salmon mixture from the refrigerator and, using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the whipped cream.
•    Preheat a broiler.
•    Using a pastry brush, lightly brush both sides of each bread slice with the melted butter. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet and place under the broiler. Toast, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, about 30 seconds on each side.
•    Remove from the broiler.
•    Using a round cutter the same diameter as the cucumber, cut out 4 rounds from each bread slice.
Presentation:
Cut the cucumber crosswise into 48 thin slices. Place the rounds of toasted bread on a work surface and put a small spot of the chilled salmon mousse on each–just enough to hold a cucumber slice in place on the bread. Now place a slice of the cucumber on each bread slice and press it gently. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mousse onto the center of the cucumber slice, top with another cucumber slice, then repeat the process again so that there are 3 cucumber slices sandwiching 2 layers of mousse. Repeat this for the remaining toasts.
Decorate each sandwich with a small dollop of the mousse and a dill sprig and transfer to a platter and serve immediately.
