There is nothing but nothing more quintessentially English than a dainty sandwich with all the crusts removed. This filling is a great way to make expensive ingredients like smoked salmon go that little bit further. It’s also hugely refreshing. That’ll be the cucumber.
All comments gratefully received. Here are some Eastery recipes you might like too:
Cream cheese, smoked salmon and cucumber sandwich filling
- 250g cream cheese
- 200g smoked salmon cut into strips
- Half a cucumber with the centre removed, grated, sprinkled in salt and left in a sieve for 30 mins to drip any excess moisture away
- Lots of freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
For Kitchen Aid users: Mix everything together using the flat beater until really light and creamy. Then spread onto white bread and remove the crusts for afternoon tea sandwiches. (For non KA users: beat the cream cheese until light and creamy using a mixer/wooden spoon, then add the other ingredients and beat until well combined.)
