    Oval in shape, with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits…

  • small bunch dill or chives, chopped
  • breadsticks or granary toast, to serve

Method

  1. If you aren’t using smoked salmon trimmings then chop the salmon into small pieces. Tip the soft cheese, crème fraîche (if using) and lemon juice into a food processor, season generously with black pepper and blitz to your liking. Add the smoked salmon and pulse a few times if you want the paté chunky or blitz some more if you want the paté smooth and pink.

  2. Stir the herbs into the paté and spoon into a large or four smaller bowls and serve with warm toast as a starter or with breadsticks as a dip.

Excellent and easy recipe, as is. I just added a little lemon zest for a fresher taste and drops of vodka for a little kick, but these additions were not necessary-the original recipe is great.

This is the best and easiest starter recipe ever. It takes absolutely no time or effort to prepare yet people really raved about it. Such a lovely, creamy rich taste of smoked salmon. I will definitely be using this one time and time again.

Really tasty. We had this for our Christmas dinner starter and I make it regularly for a quick lunch, a snack or even for work. I make it with lactofree soft cheese and it's a winner with the whole family.

By soft cheese do you mean cream cheese? I live in Australia - the term soft cheese covers everything from ricotta to brie. Many thanks.

Hi Claire, For best results we wouldn't recommend freezing the paté, it will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days in an airtight container though.Have a merry Christmas.

Make a few hours earlier to allow the flavours to develop. Keep in the fridge to firm up before serving
