This is an elegant, yet super-easy starter to throw together. Blinis are topped with sliced avocado, salmon, wasabi creme fraiche and then garnished with caviar and celery leaves. For the perfect finger food, you can also make these using canape-sized blinis.

Smoked salmon is blended into a creamy spread for crackers or bread. Great for party nibbles or canapés.

I first tried this fabulous recipe at a friends house in Filey and was blown away with the taste. If you love mackerel, then you will love this! A super fast delicious starter or snack.
