Madame Thermomix’s Smoked Salmon Spread

ThermoHubby John and I love smoked salmon and I recently bought three packs on special offer at my local supermarket, thinking I’d use one now and freeze the rest for future use. It was only when I got them home, however, that I noticed that the smoked salmon was previously frozen and therefore could not be frozen again. Serves me right for not looking more carefully at the packaging, but so much the better for you, because I whipped up this nifty little batch of smoked salmon spread just for you 😉

Serve your Smoked Salmon Spread in Little Gem "boats," on sliced baguette or toast, on apéritif spoons, or any way you like!

Serve your Smoked Salmon Spread in Little Gem “boats,” on sliced baguette or toast, on apéritif spoons, or any way you like!

Based on a recipe from Janie Turner’s classic “Fast and Easy Cooking,” I have lightened up the original version by using Greek yoghurt instead of cream cheese, and added some delightfully fragrant tarragon for a fresh and peppery taste. You can make it in a pinch from what’s in your fridge (hey, that’s exactly what I did) for a quick lunch or if friends drop by unexpectedly – or not 😉

Spread your Thermomix Smoked Salmon Spread on toast or sliced baguette (made in your Thermomix, of course), serve it in shot glasses or on apéritif spoons, or even as a gluten-free version in Little Gem “boats.” However you serve it, I’m sure you’ll like it!

Madame Thermomix’s Top Tip
  1. Squeeze your lemon onto the lid of your Thermomix. The Measuring Cup will stop the pips from dropping into the bowl whilst letting the juice strain through!
Notes
  1. Serve in Little Gem lettuce boats, on toast or sliced baguette, on apéritif spoons or in shot glasses. Makes a quick lunch with a green salad. Whip up a batch in a jiffy when friends drop by. Enjoy!
