I found this recipe in the Dec issue of BBC Goodfood.An extremely elegant starter that will grace any dinner table. Very simple yet very very tasty. The greatest advantage is that it can be prepared the night before leaving you free to enjoy time with your guests. I replaced the goats cheese which was stated in the original recipe with cream cheese as I am not very partail to goats cheese.
- sunflower oil, for greasing
- 450 g thinly sliced smoked salmon
- 250 g cream cheese (eg philadelphia)
- 3 tablespoons snipped chives
- 3 large ripe avocados, peeled, stoned and finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- sweet chili sauce, for drizzling
- baby salad leaves or rocket, and
- vinaigrette, to serve
- Lightly oil 8 ramekins. Line well with cling film, then the sliced salmon allowing plenty of overhang.
- Gently mix together the cheese, chives and avocado with the lemon juice and plenty of seasoning.
- Spoon mixture into the salmon -lined ramekins, press down, fold over the overlapping salmon then the cling film to seal the mixture.
- (Can be made the night before otherwise they should be chilled for at least 4 hours).
- When needed, gently unwrap the cling film, place a serving plate over the ramekin and turn over. Gently ease the ramekin and cling film from the terrines. Decorate the plate with baby salad leaves tossed in viniagrette.
- Drizzle the terrine and plate with sweet chilli sauce.
