This dish originated in France, but the word “canape” traces all the way back to ancient Greece. At first, it had a very different meaning – “konopion” referred to the curtains around a couch that kept mosquitos away. After being picked up by the English, who used “canope” to describe a kind of curtain, the word then passed into French, where it referred to a couch. Finally, someone noted the resemblance between a couch and a piece of toast topped with savory food, giving the word its modern meaning.
Canapes were first created by the French in 18th century. Then the reverse exchange happened (contrary to the French using the English word): the English made their own version of canapes, which they initially called amuse-bouche, which could be literally translated as “mouth amuser.”
In France, this appetizer was served during cocktail hours. Being spicy or salty, it encouraged guests to drink more. I took the main idea for this meal (not the drinking part, of course) as a basis for creating some incredibly easy paleo bites.
Nothing could be easier than slicing up the ingredients into small pieces and combining them into a compact snack. The variety of choices in making this meal is truly amazing. Canapes in all kinds of shapes and sizes, making them perfect for all kinds of people and situations.
Canapes do taste better when served with fresh parsley sprinkled on top to add a finishing note to the overall flavor. The secret of this light dish is in the way you prepare it. It’s important to cut the ingredients into small slices and to combine them in the right proportions.
Don’t worry, it’s easy enough to prepare, and there’s really no way to make this meal wrong. Even if you don’t get the pieces of fish perfectly thin, it’s still going to taste great! You can customize your canapes and experiment with different blends of flavors.
