Smoked Salmon Pate

 
Serves 6
 
It’s great to have some of this in the fridge for snacks on the run or a packed lunch.  It’s lovely and light and will keep for a week. For a family meal I put a kilner jar of this on a big board with lots of crusty bread or toast in the middle of the table and let everyone dig in while the rest of the meal (if you’re having anything else, because frankly it’s almost enough on its own) is being prepared.
 
  • 100g (3 ½ oz) smoked salmon
  • 75g (2 ¾ oz) cream cheese
