Cheats Salmon Blinis
The simplest light and fluffy blinis topped with smoked salmon, chive flecked crème fraîche and red onion pickle. A quick, easy and chic nibble fit for any occasion.
You can switch up the salmon for a sliver of steak, or top these lovely blinis with peas smashed with creme fraiche and a hit of lemon. Serves 4-6 (making between 12-20 blinis, depending on how big you make them).
These cheats blinis are so delicious served with a sliver of smoked salmon, some shop-bought red onion pickle, and a little chive flecked crème fraîche. While they might look oh so fancy they need only 12 ingredients and come together in 30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any cooking tips for the blinis?
Pour your batter into a squeezy condiment bottle with a screw on nozzle . This will help you squeeze out perfectly round blobs of batter. I love using these bottles for making blinis and pancakes. Condiment bottles can be bought on amazon, or simply clean an old tomato sauce or mayonnaise squeezy bottle.
Can I make these vegetarian ?
Have a few unexpected vegetarians but don’t want to make another canapé? Swap the smoked salmon for mushrooms sautéed with in little garlic. Mushrooms will pair wonderfully with the horseradish cream and pickles.
