Smoked Salmon Blinis

Making Salmon Blinis is easy and a real crowd pleaser. In this Smoked Salmon Blini recipe we are using premade blinis which you can buy from most supermarkets. You can make your own Blinis but this will add a good 30 minutes to the cook and prep time and just be more hassle than its worth. Wine Pairing For Smoked Salmon Blinis: Champagne, Cremant, Cava or Prosecco will all work very well. To learn how to make Smoked Salmon Blinis follow these 7 easy steps below.

  • 200 grams of sliced Smoked Salmon
  • 200 grams of crème fraiche
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Handful of fresh dill
  • Pack of 16 cocktail blinis

  • Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Then slice your lemon in half and pull the dill off the stem.

  • Step 2

    Empty all of the Crème Fraiche into a medium sized mixing bowl. Then squeeze one half of the lemon juice on top of the Crème Fraiche. Add in a handful of dill on top of the mixture.
