Nothing is more “on brand” and fun for a Halloween party than mummy-themed appetizers!
Whether you purchase one of our smoked salmon products or plan to smoke your own wild Alaskan fillets (see Nicole’s Chef’s Notes below for tips on how to do this at home with a regular propane grill), all you really need for this recipe is some crescent dough, cream cheese and jalapenos from your favorite local supplier.
Each jalapeno half is stuffed with a smear of flavorful, protein-packed smoked salmon cream cheese and wrapped with crescent dough for a perfectly mummified final look!
You can easily make your grill a smoker by adding some wood chips to a self made foil bowl.
First, soak the chips in water for 30 minutes. Get the chips hot on the grill over the flames and move it to the side of the grill when the chips start smoking. Then add your salmon to the grill and smoke. Keep the grill at 225F for about an hour until complete.
