Salmon pâté

    30 minutes

    Cream cheese is given a kick with hot chilli sauce for an almost instant salmon pâté. Great as an entree, it could also fill a special sandwich.

    Serves: 4 

    • a small bunch of chives
    • a small bunch of dill
    • a small bunch of parsley
    • 415g tinned salmon

    Preparation:30min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Chop and mix the chives, dill and parsley.
    2. Drain the salmon and discard any bones and skin. Put it into a bowl and thoroughly mix in the cream cheese.
    3. Squeeze the lemon and add the juice to the salmon mixture a little at a time, until it is sharp enough to suit your taste. Stir in the Tabasco sauce and the chopped herbs and blend to a smooth purée using a hand blender. If you prefer a slightly coarser texture, you can use a potato masher or a wooden spoon to do the blending.
    4. Season to taste with salt, black pepper, and more lemon juice, then spoon into a serving bowl or individual ramekin dishes and chill for 15 minutes.
    5. Serve the pâté with bread, toast or water crackers as desired.
