Smoked Salmon Log

I always like to make a few nibbles to kick the night off.  While one is having a drink it is always a good idea to have a little bit food to accompany the beverage you are serving.  I adore Smoked Salmon and this starter goes well with a drink or two.  It is very easy to make chop, mix and serve.

120 grams of Smoked Salmon (cut into small pieces)
250 grams cream cheese
2 spring onions (finely sliced)
12 capers (finely chopped)
3 gherkins (finely chopped)
2 teaspoons of lemon juice
1/2 bunch of dill (finely chopped)
salt & freshly ground black pepper

Preparation Time:     20-30 minutes
Makes:     13cm x 5cm log
Serves:     4-6 people

In a large bowl place the cream cheese and soften a little with a fork.  Add the spring onions, capers, gherkins, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of dill, salt and pepper.  Using a fork, mix all the ingredients together.  Add the smoked salmon and combine into the cheese mixture with a spoon.

The mixture should be firm.  Place the remaining chopped dill onto a clean plate.  With wet hands roll the mixture into a log and coat with the dill by rolling it on the plate or by sprinkling the dill with your hands onto the log.

  1. Smoked salmon and cream cheese definitely are a great combo <3 This starter will keep me very happy. 🙂 I remember I used to have smoked salmon and cream cheese spread on toast for breakfast back in the day. Good job Milanka!
