We’re talking about fresh tangy mouthfuls of cool cucumber and silky salmon. So they look a little 1980’s cocktail hour dinky. I’m not by any means convinced that that’s a bad thing.
Ingredients (enough for 4 people)½ a hot house cucumber ½ cup of crème fraiche or sour cream 4 slices of smoked salmon each cut into quarters Juice from ½ a lemon Pepper
- Wash the cucumber and cut into cm disks – thick enough not to bend when you pick them up.
- Mix the crème fraiche with the lemon
- Put a blob of the crème fraiche mixture on the cucumber slice
- Drape the salmon on top
- Season with a grind of black pepper
