  • 300g and 150g pack thinly sliced smoked salmon

  • 3 tbsp snipped chives

  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • sweet chilli sauce, for drizzling
  • salad leaves and vinaigrette, to serve

Method

  1. Lightly oil 8 small ramekins. Line with cling film, then the salmon (either 1 large or 2 smaller slices), allowing plenty of overhang.

  2. Gently mix together the cheese, chives and avocado with the lemon juice and plenty of seasoning. Spoon into the salmon-lined ramekins, press down, fold over the overlapping salmon, then cling film to seal in the mixture. Can be made the night before, but if making on the day they should be chilled for at least 4 hrs.

  3. On the day, gently lift the terrines out of the ramekins using the cling film, then remove the film. Place the terrines on plates with some baby salad leaves tossed in a little vinaigrette. Drizzle the terrine and plate with sweet chilli sauce. Serve on their own or with toast.

Made for sister's 50th Birthday meal, she is gluten intolerant so this was ideal. My ramekins maybe quite large (made 5) but as Salmon is on offer with lead up to Christmas it wasn't too expensive. Was a little concerned initially as goats cheese was very soft by the time I mixed with avocado. Make sure you leave plenty of salmon to fold over and twist cling film to shape as can be fiddly. Left in fridge overnight and plated up 1/2 hour before meal. They were lovely and firm, beautiful shape and tasted divine. I added mixed baby leaf herb salad with a drizzle of good balsamic and everyone was happy. Tasty, easy recipe ideal for Christmas.

I made this for a dinner party and it went down a storm. It looks and tastes very professional even though it's easy to assemble. I used Philadelphia instead of goats cheese and included a handful of chopped prawns. Delicious!

Made this for a special lunch, very tasty and so easy to make! I used cream cheese instead, as I'm not a huge fan of goats cheese. Loved the idea of making it ahead of time, less stress on the day. Will definitely be making this again.

We served a smaller version of these as a canape prior to the main meal and in general people seemed very impressed! They were great served alongside (gluten-free) cheese crackers.

I thought this was a bit of a weird combination but with all the good ratings gave it a try for an Easter starter. Very easy to make, looked amazing and was delicious. Definitely one to make again.
