Smoked Salmon & Cranberry Canapes

About the Recipe

  • To make these easy canapés simply layer cucumber rounds with each element for a delicious flavour combination that is also visually impressive.
  • Start with cumber, top with cranberry sauce, next add smoked salmon and finally finish with the yoghurt dressing and fresh herbs.
  • These canapés are a great way to use up Christmas leftover meat and cranberry sauce as well. For example make these using shredded turkey, Christmas ham or cooked prawns in place of salmon.
  • Instead of smoked salmon, swap with ocean trout, cooked prawns, shredded chicken or turkey.
  • Use coconut yoghurt for dairy free.
