Makes: 14-18 bites

Preparation Time: 15 min

Bake Time: 15 min

Total Time: 30 min

 

Ingredients

For the Cupcakes

  • 90g smoked salmon

  • 1 large egg

  • 25g butter, melted

  • 75g flour

  • 120g Greek yoghurt

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • lemon juice

  • pinch of salt and pepper

For the Topping

  • 100g cream cheese

  • wasabi, according to your taste (optional)

  • chives, finely chopped

For Decorating

  • fresh herbs - dill, chives, oregano, thyme


 

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a muffin pan with paper cases. Set aside.


2. Cut the smoked salmon into small pieces. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, over low heat. 3. In a large bowl combine the flour, egg, yoghurt, baking powder, melted butter, salt and pepper. Add the smoked salmon and a dash of lemon juice.


4. Pour the batter into the muffin cups about two-thirds full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on your oven and the size of the muffin cases. Don't overcook! Otherwise the bites will lose their softness and deflate. Transfer the 'cupcakes' to a rack to cool.


Prepare the Cream Cheese


5. Combine the cream cheese and wasabi or chives finely chopped. Top each cupcake with this preparation using a pastry bag fitted with a decorative tip. Decorate with dill or other herbs as desired.


Enjoy!
