CHRISTMAS SNACKS 3 OF 3: BEETROOT SALMON ROSE STACKS

Prep 40 mins
Serves As many as desired

Salmon loves beetroot, and both love cream cheese and dill. So why not combine them in gorgeous pop-in-your-mouth stacks? We think they’re perfect for serving with a glass of bubbly this festive season. Haul out those long-unused cookie cutters from the back of the cupboard, and get the kids involved in pressing out perfectly pretty circles or squares for assembly.

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • cooked beetroot (you can cook and peel it yourself, but these days many supermarkets stock ready-cooked beetroot in their fridge sections)
  • pumpernickel bread or any other dark rye bread
  • cream cheese
  • Cape Herb & Spice TALL BLACK PEPPERCORNS GRINDER
  • smoked salmon
  • fresh dill sprigs
  • cut lemons, to serve

- METHOD -

Slice the beetroot. Use a small square or round cookie cutter to cut bread and sliced beetroot. Spread bread with cream cheese, generously season cream cheese with black pepper and top with a slice of beetroot. Repeat as many layers as you like, then top with a salmon rose.

To make the salmon roses, simply roll up a thin strip of smoked salmon, gently flaring out the edges so it looks like a rose and place on top of your beetroot stacks. Top with a bit of dill.

NB: Serve with wedges of lemon for a kick of vibrant citrus to cut through that indulgent salmony richness.
