These delicious Russian savory pancakes can be served with a variety of toppings.  Here I used an avocado cream cheese topped with shrimp and smoked salmon.  For the cream cheese mixture blend cream cheese and avocado – garlic and salt – until smooth and can be inserted into a piping bag.  Pipe a small amount on each blini, top with a cooked shrimp wrapped in a small sliver of smoked salmon.  A sprig of parsley can be used to garnish.
