These chickpea flatbread with Icelandic salmon are a perfect appetizer. They taste incredibly good and you are always hungry for one more! The chickpea flatbread has a layer of cream cheese on top and together with the salmon, apples and red onion it is a perfect match.
The salmon is brought home from Iceland and it’s a wild salmon. I always prefer the wild salmons, since I am convinced that they have lived a more pleasant life than the farmed salmons. The wild salmon is more expensive but I think it’s worth the money.

Another thing that I really like are these chickpea flatbread. Chickpea flour is a great alternative to normal wheat flour. It is low carb and has a very unique taste, which I am a huge fan of. It’s also high in protein, so here you get a healthy and tasteful appetizer.
I have used chickpea flour many times before to make thin pancakes that I’ve filled with lots of veggies, feta cheese and chicken and it was great. Actually you could fill them with everything and they would taste great. Try for example to substitute your tacos with thin chickpea pancakes, when you are making mexican food. It’s reaaaaally good! In fact, I just love the possibilities that the chickpea flour creates for making yourself a low carb and fully satisfying meal.
