This is a really easy Christmas recipe perfect for serving as an appetiser or on a buffet table, You can serve it on the mini potato cakes I made in the previous recipe and as it's not a very firm pate so could also be served as a dip with raw vegetables. If you want to make it with a firmer texture just use less quark.
I know smoked salmon is expensive but it is Christmas and I know ASDA sell smoked salmon trimmings quite cheaply and those would be fine to use. I used 2 teaspoons of lemon juice for this recipe but I would start only using one teaspoon and season to taste as some quarks are sharper than others. There is no need for any salt as the smoked salmon is quite salty.
Smoked salmon pate
100g smoked salmon
1-2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tub quark
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Happy Christmas or Nadolig Llawen as they say here in Wales xx
