A starter from a dinner party some 10 days ago. A smoked salmond spread/pâté that preceded a wonderful boeuf bourguignon and delicious risalamande. On the photo below you can see it being served alongside the first - and rather good - local Estonian blue cheese, Breti Blue, some rocket leaves and crostini.
Can be eaten standing up around the table (read: perfect for cocktail parties and such like).
Smoked salmon spread
Adapted from Rachel Allen's Rachel's Favourite Food for Friends (2005)
100 grams ('cold') smoked salmon
100 grams cream cheese
100 grams sour cream/creme fraiche
about a tablespoonful of lemon juice
couple of spoonfuls of finely chopped dill
freshly ground black pepper
Maldon sea salt
Chop the smoked salmon finely, mix with cream cheese and sour cream. Season with lemon juice, dill, salt & pepper.
Easy-peasy, I know.
UPDATE 14.1.2007: "Elust siin ja seal" also made this simple salmon spread and liked it!
