Smoked Salmon Terrine with Pink Peppercorns and Gremolata

© 2024 |

© 2024 |

This luxurious and utterly delicious salmon terrine is much easier than its beautiful presentation suggests but should be made at least six hours before serving. It comprises a creamy filling wrapped in smoked salmon slices topped with a tangy herb condiment made with fresh lemon zest, dill, parsley, and fresh garlic. A real showstopper for your festive table or dinner party.
Gremolata, usually enjoyed with fish or meat, is an Italian condiment made with fresh herb (usually flat parsley), garlic and lemon.

  • 450 g Cold smoked salmon
  • 125 g Unsalted Kerrygold butter
  • 125 ml Whipping cream
  • 2 tsp Pink peppercorns, crushed plus extra for garnish
  • Cucumber, sliced or peeled into ribbons
  • Lemon wedges, to garnish
  • 1 tbsp Chopped dill
  • 1 tbsp Chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp Grated lemon zest
  • 1 Garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Wet the inside of a 8cm x 20cm terrine or loaf pan and line with cling film, then slightly overlapping 180 grams of slices of smoked salmon (preferably in long strips), leaving a little hanging over the sides to fold back over the top when filled.
  2. Melt the butter completely in a saucepan. Once it has separated, use a spoon to carefully remove the milky residue on top and discard.
  3. Place the remaining salmon in a food processor. Add in clarified butter and cream. Process everything together until smooth. Season with crushed pink peppercorns.
  4. Pour the salmon mixture into the terrine mould, and fold over the overhanging salmon slices to cover the top. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge to chill for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
  5. Place all the gremolate ingredients in a bowl and gently mix togher.
  6. To serve, invert terrine onto a plate with sliced cucumber. Remove plastic wrap and top with gremolata and some pink peppercorns.

Soy aficionada a este tipo de terrinas cuando llega el tiempo caluroso, son refrescantes y sabrosas y se pueden hacer con antelación, lo que a veces se agradece cuando tienes invitados. Me parece un entrante delicioso.

I had a salmon BLT the other day, and it was absolutely yummy. Thanks for another recipe because you can't go wrong with most fish, especially salmon. Happy new week too.

Hi Angie, Looking at my dad's pictures, we do have a big round head in common. My mother used to tell me that some of my mannerisms and the things I like to do were things my dad liked too... As for your terrine, we've never made one but this salmon terrine looks great! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

This terrine looks extraordinary!

That sure requires quite a bit of work. But efforts paid off!

I can’t wait to try this, Angie. When I made the smoked salmon, caviar, dill, and cucumber hors d’oeuvres, the pink peppercorns were such a perfect touch. So I know how well they go with these flavors. David (C&L)
