These Easy Peasy Smoked Salmon Blinis are a lovely and light Christmas Day starter. Adding the cucumbers to the sauce makes it so fresh and crunchy. The Salmon and Prawn provide a great dose of Omega 3 oils which have so many important health benefits.
I wasn't sure what to cook for a Christmas day Starter. Due to the Corona Virus it was just to be my lovely Wife Susie and I to cook for. The Turkey would be well under way and I just wanted a simple brunch to enjoy with some bubbles. I remembered making something very similar for last New Years Eve so I decided to do something along those lines.
We ate these about 11ish, washed down with the bubbles, then went for a lovely little walk before opening our presents and enjoying our Christmas dinner about 3 o'clock.
Happy New Year.
❤️P.S This would be a fantastic starter for Valentines Day too??❤️
