Salmon Blinis – a canape with a difference. You could prepare these morish canapes before your soiree and assemble them when you need them, alternatively, like Justine Schoefield, you can easily make them away from your kitchen, making them ideal for a treat if you’re caravanning or camping in the warmer parts of the country. Either way, these tasty canapes are perfect for any occasion with your favourite cool beverage!

Why not try something new for breakfast and give these Salmon Blinis a go tomorrow?
