It’s that time of year when friends drop in unexpectedly for drinks and you need to whip up something quick and easy to serve with all the booze. These delicious canapés have a nice little heat kick that can be quenched just as easily with champagne or beer – how’s that for a crowd pleaser?
I haven’t specified ingredient quantities, so that you can make as little or as many as you need.
Witlof, washed and leaves separated
Coriander and white pepper to garnish
Mix together sour cream and wasabi paste, (4 tablespoons of sour cream to 1 teaspoon of wasabi) and set aside. Trim the stalks of the witlof leaves if needed.
Slice cucumber into thin matchsticks and place a small mound into a witlof leaf. Top with half a slice of smoked salmon and a teaspoon of the sour cream mixture.
Garnish with fresh coriander and white pepper. Serve with a lemon wedge for squeezing.
