1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 thin, long french baguette, cut into 1/4-inch slices


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place bread slices on baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden and crispy. Let cool.

Mix butter, lemon juice and zest, chives, mustard, dill, salt and pepper in a bowl until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Bring to room temperature before using.

Spread a thick layer of the mustard-chive butter on each piece of toast and place a slice of smoked salmon on top. Arrange on a plate or tray and serve.
