Prawn, smoked-salmon and crab terrine with lemony leaves

Photo Credit: Cristian Barnett
This is a very special no cook recipe suggestion for easy entertaining ... it's a chilled, creamy terrine with crab meat and pre-cooked prawns, served with a mustardy lemon salad. Yum !

Serves Six
3 gelatin leaves
sunflower oil, for greasing
12 small cooked, peeled tiger prawns (about 75g)
400g smoked salmon
25g unsalted butter, softened
150ml double cream
1 tbsp brandy (optional)
few dashes of Worcester sauce
few dashes of hot-pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
100g dry white crabmeat

For the lemon salad:
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
the juice of ½ lemon
1 tsp Dijon mustard
¼ tsp clear honey (optional)
125g mixed salad leaves

To serve:
small handful of fresh dill leaves
1 chive flower, broken up (optional)
1 lemon
crispbreads, crackers* or wholemeal bread

If you live the LCHF lifestyle why not consider these low carb crackers* see here

Please note - it is important to chill the terrine well for a firm set, which will allow for neat slices. Squeeze any excess water from the crab-meat. You may need a 150g pack of crab-meat to give 100g when squeezed dry.

I might have to give this one a miss Jan, I do love salmon but not smoked salmon for some unknown reason, and not prawns ☺

We have our own fish here to catch...bass, crappie, perch, brim and catfish but live far from areas for other fresh fish. We do enjoy them.

I thought the third photo of the fungi with the green looks like a giant trees's foot to me but you know I have a strange imagination. Almost as if the tree could step away when my back was turned.

The fossil is one of Dad's. After Mom died and we knew Dad had Alzheimer's I built the first water garden for him with gold fish. He would sit for hours watching them until he decided to create a massive channel and over flow system for the pond. He built up the rocks with dirt, making big banks and channeled perceived flood waters through the yard to a giant earthen dam at the fence. It was his yard and he had much pleasure doing the work he loved with a shovel and his man power. I later dug all of it out, filled his channels and remade the pond. With Alzheimer's you pick your battles. It was his place so we let him enjoy it.

Have a very blessed week.
