Serve a rougher blend of this smoked salmon pâté as a starter with salad and oatcakes or blend a bit longer for elegant canapés.


  1. Pop all the ingredients into a blender and pulse until it has a consistency that you desire. Plenty of pepper is good but go easy on the salt, as the smoked salmon will be salty already. Occasionally I would substitute lime and coriander instead of lemon and chives.


  • 255g/9oz smoked salmon
  • 110g/4oz cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp double cream
  • ½ lemon, juice only
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives (plus some extra chives to sprinkle over the top)
  • pinch of sugar
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
