When you have people over for dinner and your main course needs some attention before serving, it’s a good idea to have a starter that is pre-prepared so that’s one less thing for you to think about. This recipe fits the bill perfectly and is also very tasty. It is also perfect to put out as part of a simple lunch platter or just to nibble on with drinks. This quantity serves four as an entree.
Smoked Salmon Rillettes
100g cream cheese
100g crème fraîche
100g smoked salmon trimmings, half diced
2-3 tsp creamed horseradish – to your taste

Put all the ingredients except the diced smoked salmon into a food processor and process to combine until smooth. Fold through through the diced smoked salmon and then split the mixture between four small ramekins.
