Smoked Salmon Cannelloni with buttermilk/schnapps foam

Another quick starter, I just love… The airy, creamy filling (mascarpone and whipped cream) works perfectly with the smoked salmon. The buttermilk/schnapps foam just adds another twist. It’s the posh edition of the classic, smoked salmon and cream cheese, combo. Credits go to Bind, for the inspiration.


  • Smoked salmon
  • Mascarpone
  • Whipped cream
  • Mixed fresh herbs (i used: dild and tarragon)
  • Buttermilk
  • Creme fraiche
  • Schnapps

Whip the mascarpone until silky smooth. Whip the cream and fold into the mascarpone (half/half). Chop the herbs and add them to the mix. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Place a slice of salmon on a piece of cleanfilm, add some of the filling and roll it together tightly. Set to cool and firm up, in the fridge.


Combine 1 part buttermilk and 1 part creme fraiche. Add a small amount of schnapps, season with salt and pepper (the buttermilk will provide the acidity). Blitz it all together until you have a nice foam.


Serve and….
