Last weekend I went on a trip down memory lane and made a dish I remember tasting as a child when visiting one of my mother’s cousins sometime in the 1970s. Not entirely sure what prompted this wave of nostalgia, but the cousin lived in Bury St Edmunds for a short while and I guess my recent trips down to Bury must have sparked the old grey matter. It is food that’s normally found on a summer menu, but why not have a taste of summer in the midst of a leaden, dismal February.
Can you guess as you scroll down the pictures what I made? Last picture is the finished dish – with a label as let’s face it, it could be anything under all the green!!
And along with the lemons, cucumber and cream cheese . . .
That’s some parsley and thick cream . . .
And finally the chopped smoked salmon and prawns. All blitzed together in the food processor and then into the lined mould.
