Smoked Salmon Terrine - Day 5

Carlos and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last week and I prepared a special dinner for the both of us. I prepared this appetizer for the very special day. Many people like to add cream cheese with smoked salmon but I prefer using roasted peppers, green olives, hard boiled eggs etc. It gives the terrine a contrast of colors. So if you are having a party or celebration a special occasion, maybe you can prepare this as it only takes a few minutes to prepare but it will never fails to impress your guest.


A few days into the challenge and I am totally enjoying it. Tried out a couple jellies today and by now I am very comfortable using the Jelly moulds. No problem unmolding it :)


Ingredients:
Recipe source: My Kitchen Snippets

1/4 pound smoked salmon – roughly chopped
1 roasted red pepper – chopped
2 hardboiled eggs
1/3 cup yellow sundried tomatoes in oil – roughly chopped
1/4 cup green olives – roughly chopped
1 tbsp mayo
Some chopped chives
Salt and pepper to taste


1. Roughly chopped up the eggs and mix it with mayo, chives, salt and pepper.
2. Line the Jelly Moulds with some aluminum foil. Add in about a tbsp of smoked salmon and press it tight with a spoon.
3. Follow by the chopped olives, peppers, hardboiled eggs, salmon again and lastly yellow sundried tomatoes.
4. Put it in the fridge and let it marinate and set for at least an hour. Unmold the terrine and serve it with some crackers or toasted crusty bread.

i learn a new thing again today... and i think i understand about it a little...

from wiki...
Terrine may refer to:
* Terrine (cookware), a vessel for cooking a forcemeat loaf
* A terrine is a French forcemeat loaf similar to a pâté, made with more coarsely chopped ingredients.[1] Terrines are usually served cold[1] or at room temperature.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO U & HUBBY...
