Apart from eating it straight I normally flake it into cream cheese, add a squeeze of lemon juice and use it as a filling in a baguette with some rocket leaves.

How do you have yours?

I'm a day too late but smoked salmon, cream cheese and a hint of dill makes one of the finest savoury pancakes known to humanity. :)

10min meal for 2/3 (or 1 if you eat man sized portions like me..)

200-300g SMOKED salmon
300-600g shelled prawns (pre-cooked)
Half punnet mushrooms
Cream (2-3 tablespoons)
Garlic cloves *3 (crushed and roughly diced)
Squeeze lemon
Dash of salt n pepper
500g tagliatelle (fresh is better, but dried works)

!Low! heat - lob in some butter (olive works too), chop shrooms and add to pan. Add prawns and salmon and leave for a couple mins to heat through. Add garlic*. Add lemon to taste. Add cream. Cook for a further few mins, never allowing cream to boil.

*I add the garlic quite late, as I quite like a strong garlic flavour. Adding it at the start adds little to the end dish.

Pasta - easy. Fresh pasta takes 2-3mins into boiling water. Dry takes 8-10mins into boiling water. If using dry pasta, start cooking the pasta pretty much as soon as prep work is done. If using fresh, start cooking pasta when you add the cream.

I eat this quite a lot. It's quick, but not the cheapest meal.

Add in a slightly fruity white or rose and some crusty bread for a nice saturday lunch.

2-300g salmon, doesn't sound like a smoked salmon recipe :) ;)

Add more. I don't use loads as I find it overly rich in large quantities.

The question was, are you using "smoked" salmon or not? :D It wasn't clear.

Just wanted to check :thumbsup:

And I'm inclined to agree, any more than that and it would be overpowering :smashin:

This year we tried smoked salmon and taramasalata on pancakes, possibly too hard a hit for some, but I loved it. Tempering with bit of cream cheese may have been a good idea.
Blinis, cream cheese, smoked salmon and Caviar is nice for a treat... By which I mean poor man's caviar, not the real stuff :)

Absolutely cracking starter!, I do this regularly...



As with many recipes, a bit faffy the first time you make it, easy subsequently.
Tinned white crab meat works just as well as fresh.
As suggested chopped cooked prawns are a good addition.

The only issue is that this can overshadow your main course. :D

:smashin:

Brush with vodka, sprinkle finely chopped red chilli and lime zest, cover with cling film and place in the fridge until required.

When required sprinkle with lime juice just before serving and it goes really well with an iced vodka shot.

Scrambled egg, sliced avocado, smoked salmon, and cover the lot in chives and chilli flakes. Yum

My Fish Pie recipe...

Use non-stick frying pan.
From Supermarket: pre-prepared fresh fish pie pack (Smoked Salmon, Haddock, Cod).
First, add tub of half-fat Creme Fraish to pan, and gently heat.
Add Fish. Gently stir until Fish has softened/crumbled.
Add 1 heaped spoon of Dijon Mustard to pan and stir.
Add Spinach (either fresh or defrosted), plus defrosted Peas.
Transfer pan contents to oblong casserole dish,
Add a layer of Mashed Potatoes (I use ready-made fresh Mash).
Add layer of extra-mature grated Cheddar Cheese.
Place dish in pre-heated Oven, at 200c, for 20 minutes.
Remove and serve.
