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.

Blinis are small light pancakes, originally from Russia. The version here is made with wholemeal flour, and the blinis are topped with soured cream, pickled herring, smoked salmon and lumpfish roe. A very special starter.

These little Russian pancakes have a deliciously distinctive flavour. For a more luxurious starter, top with a spoonful of dip or sour cream.

A super canapé for an elegant brunch or dinner party. Light buckwheat blinis are topped with a classic combo of smoked salmon, soured cream and fresh dill. You need start the blinis early because they need a few hours to rise.

The delicious blinis or mini pancakes are delicious served warm with smoked salmon, tzatziki or hummus. They can be made in advance, then frozen or refrigerated. All you need to do is warm them through before serving.
