250g cream cheese, at room temperature
120g smoked salmon, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 small red onion ,finely chopped
1 tablespoon horseradish cream
1/4 cup continental parsley, finely chopped
2 tablespoons dill, finely chopped
Lightly fry the red onion until soft. Set aside and allow to cool.
Stir cream cheese in bowl until smooth. Stir in salmon, onion, lemon juice and horseradish until well combined.
Shape into a sausage shape.
Combine parsley and dill. lay out a sheet of foil and overlap with a sheet greaseproof paper. Spread the parsley mix over the sheet. Sprinkle pepper over the parsley mixture.
Roll log in herbs until completely coated. Place log to the side. Remove any left over herbs off the greaseproof paper. Place the log back on the clear piece of greaseproof paper and roll highly starting from one end of the sheet. Take the roll in the greaseproof paper and roll in foil to retain its shape tightly.
