Smoked Salmon, Herbs & Cream Cheese Stacks

Recipe by Manami
READY IN: 40mins


  • 4
    tablespoons mascarpone cheese
  • 2
    tablespoons onion & chive low-fat cream cheese
  • 1
    tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained and chopped
  • 2
    teaspoons chives, chopped, plus extra for decoration
  • 14
    teaspoon dill, plus extra for decoration (optional)
  • 1
    lemon, juiced and zested
  • 8
    thin slices country bread (something that won't fall apart) or 8 potato bread (something that won't fall apart)
  • 4 -6
    slices smoked salmon (we prefer Nova)


  • Mix the mascarpone, cream cheese, capers and chives, lemon zest and enough lemon juice to flavour it, but not enough to make it runny.
  • Season really well.
  • Spread the mascarpone mix over all the bread slices, then cover completely with a layer of salmon.
  • Put one bread slice on top of another, so you have a four separate stacks, each 2 deep (with smoked salmon on top).
  • Carefully cut each into 6 bite-sized squares with a serrated knife.
  • Dip the ends of the squares in chives and decorate with extra shreds of lemon zest if you like.
