  • 150 g hot smoked salmon pieces or trout
  • 1 tsp butter cold
  • 1 1/2 tsp brandy or cognac
  • 1/3 cup thickened cream
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest

To Serve:

  • cayenne pepper and spring onion optional


  1. Peel the skin from your smoked salmon pieces. Discard the skin.

  2. Put all of the ingredients into a small blender, and blend until the mixture is smooth. 

  3. Put the pate in a serving dish, and garnish with cayenne pepper and/or finely sliced spring onion. I like to serve with toasted bread, but it is also delicious with crackers or crudites. 

Recipe Notes

* The dip itself is gluten-free and can be served with gluten-free crackers or crudites as required.

* It can be made the day before - just save the garnish until serving.

* Use good quality hot smoked salmon pieces - it will give you more flavour and better texture.
