Smoked Salmon Pate

Smoked Salmon Pate

My Smoked Salmon Pate is a delicious appetiser. It is a dish that you can prepare in just ten minutes, or less if you work quickly!! I love to serve this when I have friends or family over – even those who are not huge seafood fans can’t resist this creamy, flavoursome dip!

For this recipe, I use Hot Smoked Salmon pieces, which provide a delicious flavour to the pate.

I prefer to use this as opposed to regular cold Smoked Salmon slices. I find that the Hot Smoked Salmon has a better texture. It is also delicious flaked into salads, such as my Broccoli Stem and Carrot Salad. Whereas, in my recipe for Smoked Salmon Bread Tartlets, I prefer to use the cold smoked variety. The difference between the two varieties lies in the smoking temperature.

To prepare this delicious appetiser is simple.

I begin by removing the skin from the salmon pieces. I then place all of the ingredients into a small blender. The pate is blended until a smooth consistency. I then place it into a serving dish and garnish with some spring onions or chives and cayenne pepper.

This dish can be prepared the day before it is required; I recommend garnishing just before serving.

It is perfect served with a glass of champagne or wine! I like to serve with some toasted bread and crudites.
