Pretty smoked salmon verrines are an easy recipe to make, but look so impressive! Ideal for a light first course for a dinner party.
A dash of care with presentation lifts a simple dish from something straightforward and easy to something a bit special, and these smoked salmon verrines are a perfect example. Even the name can impress: verrine rolls around the tongue impressively (even more so in a French accent), and sounds most professional even though the dish is just ingredients layered in a glass. In the Fuss Free kitchen it is all about obtaining a good effort to glory ratio.
My smoked salmon verrines are perfect for a first course, even an amuse-bouche, or as a part of a brunch, maybe served with some scrambled egg? You don’t need to spend much on the smoked salmon; cheaper offcuts are perfect for this dish, and are sold in most supermarkets.
Primula with prawns my favourite flavour and brings back childhood memories of a Primula sandwich on the beach – way back in the day when the Primula used to come in a metal tube which you really had to squeeze to get the last drops out.
If you don’t like seafood Primula have a range of 6 flavours to choose from, this would also be delicious made with the original or chive flavours.
