I always associate canapés with weddings. I suppose it’s because I have never been to a wedding that had no smoked salmon canapes. They are this popular for a reason – smoked salmon is absolutely delicious! Do you LOVE smoked salmon as much as we do? We do love it a lot, but in our house, it is reserved for special occasions, like Christmas. I almost think I don’t buy it often intentionally: I like it so much that I am, in a way trying to preserve its special status, by limiting it as much as possible. I wish I could do the same with cakes and desserts but unfortunately, it’s too late for me!

Homemade sweetcorn blinis are extremely easy to make. It’s essentially a pancake batter with some spring onion, sweetcorn and chilli powder. The trick is not to overcook the blini – since we are using less than a teaspoon of the mixture per blini, it may be difficult to spoon them all out into the pan without having to flip the first ones in. We suggest cooking them in batches, not overcrowding the pan and stressing yourself out!

How to Make Smoked Salmon on Sweetcorn Blinis?

In a bowl, beat the egg and milk together. Mix in the flour and chilli powder and season with salt and pepper. Make sure there are no pockets of dry flour remaining in the mixture. Add the sweetcorn and spring onion.

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Once hot, add a small tsp of the sweetcorn mixture to the pan per blini. Fry for a minute on each side, then transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel to remove any excess oil.

Roll strips of smoked salmon to form little flowers and place them onto the blinis. Pipe cream cheese into the centre of each smoked salmon roll.

Cut each lemon slice into small segments, and cut the zest off (you may keep it but the bitterness of it may overpower other flavours). Add a small piece of lemon to each canape. Decorate with some spring onions, chive or fresh dill, if you wish.
