Salmon Pate by Mark Horton, French Franks

Quick, easy, fresh and luxurious.

Pates are a regular feature around Christmas and French Franks, quick pate is also a great was to entertain at Christmas withith fresh canapes or create delicious light bites for a festive supper.

It really is quick and easy as Christmas should be. 


(light bites for six or canapes for more):

250g Smoked salmon
100g Cream cheese
1tbsp Double cream
Pinch of sugar
Good grind of fresh ground pepper


Simply blitz 2/3 of the salmon and all of the other ingredients in a blender until it reaches a smooth consistency. Finely chop rest of the salmon and fold it through the mix (keep a little if you want to dress the top).


To add extra zing
Lime zest and chopped coriander simply folded in. Or Chili, chives, dill, parsley and horseradish would also work.
