From Paul Hollywood's Bread
Whizz up this zesty smoked salmon with cream cheese – tastes great with fresh soda bread.


  1. To begin, place all the ingredients except the capers in a food processor. Pulse until a pâté forms which still has some texture to it and is not a purée.

  2. Taste to check the seasoning as smoked salmon can vary greatly in its saltiness. It may also need more lemon juice.

  3. Serve with sliced bread, such as stout soda bread, and large caper berries.


  • 100g/3½oz cream cheese
  • 100g/3½oz crème fraîche
  • 200g/7oz smoked salmon
  • 1 lemon, zest only, finely grated
  • ½ lemon, juice only
  • 1 tbsp creamed horseradish
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped, fresh dill
  • caper berries, to serve
