Easy little bites of food

Regardless if we are talking holiday or cocktail party, it’s great to welcome company with a little canapé. Actually, no party is a party without having some bite-size starter AND it’s a great way to have people mingle and loosen up. Tis the season with these easy little bites.

Ingredients

White sauce:
200gr semi-skinny sour cream
50gr plain greek yoghurt
1.5 tbsp estragon vinegar
0.5 tbsp mayo
1 cucumber
Handful of fresh dill
Handful of soft parsley
1 small red onion for garnish (optional)
few shakes of soft salt (fleur de sel)
few shakes of pepper

Fish:
3-4 slices of smokes salmon and halibot (ask your fishmonger to slice it really thin)
Slice them in fine strips (1cm wide, 5cm long) so that you can nicely place them

Blinis:
1 pack (12 pieces) store bought blinis or in case you cannot get a hold of it, you will need the recipe

170gr of plain flour
0.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp dried yeast
pinch of salt
200ml of milk
1 egg separated
15gr of melted butter

Method

Blinis:
Sift the flour, the baking powder, yeast and the salt into a large bowl
Heat the milk until lukewarm and pour it the flour mixture with the eggyolk
and melted butter
Cover with clingfilm and leave to rest for at least 30 mins
Whisk the eggwhite until stiff peaks form
Gently fold it into the batter
Heat a tsp of oil in a nonstick frying pan
Spoon 1 dollop of the mixture on the hot pan
It takes 1-2 minutes on the first side and 1 more on the second side

White sauce:
Mix the sour cream, greek yoghurt, mayo and the vinegar and put aside
In the meantime take out the seeds of the cucumber and slice the meat in
1 sq mm cubes. Do the same thing with the red onion should you decide
to use it.
Finally chop both fresh herbs and stir them in to sauce.

Just before you serve slightly warm up the blinis in the oven and then cover
each blini with a spoonful of the white sauce. Then nicely fold a stip of smoked
fish on top and garnish with some of the red onion, cucumber and herbs

Bon appetit.
