Smoked Salmon in Prawn Cream with Dill

Print Email

Adapted from "Almost Vegetarian"

2 oz unsalted butter
8 oz peeled (cooked) prawns *(in LA, these are referred to as bay shrimp)
5 – 6 oz greek style yoghurt (a small carton) – last night I used non-fat
1/4 whole nutmeg grated
8 oz smoked salmon
2 teaspoons green peppercorns
handful of fresh dill, chopped finely
2 - 4 pinches of chilli powder
salt

Get out your food processor.

Melt butter gently in small saucepan. Put prawns and yoghurt in food processor. Add melted butter. Whizz thoroughly until smooth. Turn mixture into bowl and season with grated nutmeg, chilli powder and a little salt. Slice salmon into small pieces. Keep some back for "prettiness at the end" and stir remaining into pureed prawn mixture. Either spoon the mixture into small dishes or keep it in the big one and put in the fridge for several hours. Mix dill with chopped peppercorns and sprinkle all over dish with remaining smoked salmon.

And serve with melba toast.

Or do what I did, which is plonk it all together, run out of time to refrigerate it and serve it in lettuce leaves.
