    These tasty little mouthfuls are incredibly easy to make. Smoked salmon is rolled with a pepper seasoned creme fraiche and cut into bite-sized pieces. Feel free to add dill or chives to the creme fraiche, if desired.

    This elegant make-ahead salmon starter requires a bit of time, but is actually rather easy. You'll need a terrine. Great to make ahead for dinner parties!

    This is a great alternative to the standard salmon patty recipe using couscous, spinach, and cumin for an exotic flavour.
