Smoked salmon is a really luxurious and tasty fish. It's made by curing whole fresh salmon. You can buy it in whole sides, pre-sliced sides, sliced packets or offcuts.
It's versatile inasmuch as it can be eaten straight from the packet or made into pates, pasta sauces, pies, quiches, tarts and spreads. Eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper.

This smoked salmon recipe is very simple to prepare.
It's a useful recipe to have at your disposal.
You could serve it as part of a buffet or a meal for the family.
I can't remember where I first saw it, so if it's your recipe and you'd like a credit, then please get in touch.
You'll need a large flan tin - 28 cm (about 11 inches).
It's handy if you have one with a loose bottom as you can remove the tin prior to serving.
You can often find smoked salmon offcuts at the supermarket - they're a lot cheaper than slices and as you're going to cut it all up anyway, it doesn't matter that it's in bits!
It is also possible to use fresh cooked salmon or even canned salmon in this recipe - drain and remove all the skin and bones prior to using.
