Method: 

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Brush bread on one side with olive oil and place oil side up, on a baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until just crisp and slightly golden. Do not over toast. Set aside to cool.

In a small bowl, blend together cream cheese, dill, onion and black pepper. Place in a pastry bag with a large tip or use a small spoon to place a dollop on the center of each toast. Cut salmon slices in half or thirds and fold a bite-sized slice over each toast. Garnish with capers and fresh dill sprigs. Place on a large platter with lemon wedges.
