The exceptional Salmon Paste

There's lots to be told about salmon. Lots of recipes, but most of them involve salmon, lemon juice and fresh dill. This recipe is no exception, but it's so good, I can't not post it. Best with a fresh baguette, that's all I'm saying. We tried it on toast fours, on baguette, on cut precel bread and it was always yummy.

Type of dish: snack, starter
Cost: medium
Difficulty: easy
Serves: 4-10
Time: 30 min
Preparation time: 5 min
Serving time: 20 min

What you need to prepare this dish:
Blender, bowl, knife, spoon, cutting board, toaster (additional), pastry bag with a regular nozzle (like and "O")


  • 250grams of smoked salmon
  • 1 tbsp of fresh cream
  • 100 grams mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tbsp dried dill
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 baguette/ or 2 pretzels/ or  half a loaf of toasted white bread

How to prepare:

Prepare your blender. Put in everything apart from the bread, and blend until the mixture resembles a cream cheese and the salmon is evenly shredded. Taste a bit to see if it needs more lemon juice or salt, or pepper. Cooking is all about tasting, people! Besides, why would the cook go hungry? :)
Put the paste in the fridge to cool down a bit, and cut the bread into desired slices. Triangles, squares, or just cut the bread in 4-5mm slices. If you're using white bread, you're in for more fun. Toast it in the toaster or your oven, cool it down, cut off the edges and cut to the shape you want it. Take your salmon paste out of the fridge and put a teaspoon on each piece of bread you have, or, if you have to make more, put the salmon paste in a pastry bag, and squirt out the amount needed.
Garnish with fresh dill and lemon wedges on the side.
