Ingredients

  • 1 can John West Wild Red Salmon (213g)
  • Vegetable oil, for greasing
  • 300g (10oz) fresh spinach, thoroughly washed
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 50g (2oz) Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, finely grated
  • 200g tub low-fat soft cheese
  • 4 tbs crème fraiche

Step 1

To prepare our Spinach & Salmon Roulade Recipe preheat the oven to 200°C / Fan Oven 180°C / Gas Mark 6. Grease and line a 20 x 30cm (8 x 12 inch) Swiss roll tin with non-stick baking paper. Grease with a little vegetable oil.

Step 2

Cook the spinach in a small amount of water for about 5 minutes, until wilted. Drain thoroughly, squeezing out the excess moisture, and then chop finely. Cool. Tip into a large bowl and mix in the egg yolks. Stir in the grated cheese and season with salt and pepper.In a large, grease-free bowl, whisk the egg whites until they hold their shape. Fold into the spinach mixture, using a large metal spoon. Pour into prepared tin and spread into the corners. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until set and light golden brown.

Step 3

Turn out the roulade onto a large sheet of greaseproof paper. Peel away the lining and leave to cool.
Beat the low-fat soft cheese until smooth and creamy, then mix in the crème fraiche, flaked John West Salmon, tomatoes and herbs.

Step 4

Season. Spread over the roulade, and roll up from the short end. Chill until ready to serve.
