Smoked Salmon Kettle Chips

There was a recipe not too long ago in Bon Appetit that I made and loved (as did my guests). And it’s ridiculously simple. Salt & black pepper kettle chips. Layer individual chips with a piece of smoked salmon. Top with lemon creme fraiche. (just add lemon zest to creme fraiche to taste.) I usually top with chives. Easy. Great texture and taste. And totally addictive. Great with champagne.

Devils on Horseback

* You can call them devils on horseback: Wrap pitted dates (replacing the pit with an almond if you like) in bacon. Skewer with toothpicks and broil, turning once, until bacon is done. See also Nigella Lawson (she uses prunes)

Smoked Salmon Pate

  • 150g smoked salmon , trimmings are fine
  • 200g tub soft cheese
  • 1 tbsp crème fraîche , only if you have some
  • juice half a lemon
  • small bunch dill or chives , chopped
  • breadsticks or granary toast, to serve

26 Even jazzier: Cut just-ripe pears in 1/2-inch cubes; sprinkle with a little salt, sugar and cayenne. Spear with bacon.



37 Toss peeled shrimp with lots of minced garlic, pimentón or paprika, cayenne, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Broil until done, turning once, about five minutes.
