What’s a good side or pairing for these fish crostini?

For a delightful pairing with these crostini, consider a refreshing side salad. A mix of crisp greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion dressed with a zesty citrus vinaigrette complements the richness of the cream cheese and the mild heat of the chili pepper. The salad’s brightness and acidity contrast beautifully with the creamy and savory crostini, creating a harmonious and satisfying combination for your palate.

Can I prepare these fish crostini in advance?

While it’s best to assemble these crostini just before serving to maintain their crispiness and freshness, you can prepare some components ahead of time. You can pre-slice the chili peppers, have the cream cheese ready, and even toast the brioche slices a bit in advance. However, it’s advisable to add the raw fish, coarse salt, and oregano leaves right before serving to ensure the best texture and flavor for your guests.

Can I substitute olive oil with another oil?

Yes, you can substitute olive oil with a different neutral oil like canola or vegetable oil if you prefer. While olive oil adds a distinct flavor, a neutral oil won’t overpower the delicate flavors of the raw fish and cream cheese. Just ensure the substitute oil is fresh and of good quality to maintain the overall quality and taste of your crostini.
