Cucumber rounds with lemon crème fraiche and smoked salmon

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 cup of crème fraiche or sour cream
4 slices of smoked salmon each cut into quarters
Juice from ½ a lemon

  • 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
