These smoked salmon bruschetta can be prepped hours in advance and refrigerated, but are quick enough to make and serve in 15 minutes. The smoked salmon brings rich deep flavor, which the brie lightens up making it suitable for an appetizer. Dill and red onion are optional, but lend a remembrance of lox. Serves 2.
