Absolutely gorgeous recipe, and if you are feeling adventurous you can line small ramekin dishes with strips of smoked salmon, then fill with the pâté, fold the exposed salmon over the pâté and refrigerate until set. If you then invert the dishes on to individual plates you will have perfect smoked salmon pâté parcels.
