Smoked salmon pâte
Low fat and a great snack, perfect for slimming world as it's syn free!
Smoked salmon is, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest things out there. It pleases me a great deal that this treat is syn free on slimming world and as such, I can eat a ton of it (and I do). One of my favourite ways to use it is in a simple smoked salmon pâte. It makes for a great starter, dip or snack and it's also low fat, healthy, full of protein and of course, syn free. It's alway a hit with my friends and family as it simply does not taste like diet food.
Makes enough for 2 greedy, hungry people (like myself), or maybe 4-6 as a dip.
150g smoked salmon trimmings (or the real deal, if you're feeling a tad flash, it does taste best with the nice cuts, but sometimes I resent the hefty price tag!)
200g plain quark
Quarter of a lemon, juiced
1 heaped tsp fresh chives chopped finely (dried will suffice if no fresh chives to hand, if using dried use half a tsp)
Simply chuck it all in a blender together. I use a hand blender usually, you may need to add a little extra quark if it's a bit stodgy. Top and serve in little rammekins and with a bit of extra chopped chive on the top of each, if you're feeling fancy or entertaining guests.
