Dinner Party Salmon Terrine Recipe

Working with the remainder of a salmon tail, I made these individual salmon terrines.  Easy to make the terrines can be made the night before, they are really useful for dinner parties.

Dinner Party Salmon Terrine

Similar to pâté, this terrine is easy to make and even better to eat. Combining salmon, herbs and cheese you can wow your guests with very little effort.

Cuisine French, Provencal
Servings 6 people


  • 650 gr Salmon use the tail
  • 200 gr Full fat soft cheese
  • 4 tbsp Chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Smoked salmon to garnish
  • Lemon wedges to garnish


  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C.
  • Lightly season the salmon and wrap tightly in tin foil.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes until just cooked.
  • Leave the salmon in the tin foil to cool completely.
  • Beat the cream cheese and dill in a bowl until smooth and creamy.
  • Carefully flake the cooled salmon into a bowl with the cooking juices, making sure there are no bones.
  • Fold the flaked salmon into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Place 6 metal rings (5cms x 5cms) on a baking tray and fill with the salmon mixture.
  • If you want to use ramekins, make certain you line them with cling film.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but overnight is best.
  • To serve, carefully lift off the rings (or turn the ramekins upside down and remove the cling film), garnish the top with a curl of smoked salmon and place on a bed of salad leaves with a wedge of lemon.
  • I serve mine with crusty French bread, but brown wholemeal bread is equally as good.

Gary and Jane Langton

Gary and Jane Langton

When Jane was younger she wanted to be a show-jumper and, although she had some success, Jane knew she could never afford a horse that could take her to the top. Similarly, Jane enjoyed cooking and would have loved to be a chef, but she always knew that the unsocial hours would never fit with raising her family. So she stepped into the world of property construction and interior design, where she enjoyed a successful and fun filled career.

Gary went to a nautical school and always dreamed of going to sea, captaining his own ship. Although he managed to be selected for officer training in the Royal Navy at an early age, by the time he was 18 he no longer had 20:20 vision and his chosen field in the RN was no longer open to him. For a short period Gary studied quantity surveying before finally choosing a career in banking, during which time he lived for a period in New York before returning to London and ultimately running a global business team (involving much travel).

Jane and Gary met, via the internet, in February 2005 and their relationship took off. By 2007 they were married and, in early 2009, they both decided that enough was enough - the constant travelling with their jobs, rushed weekends together and too much politics in their business lives finally taking its toll.

So they decided on a total change of life. Jane had always dreamed of running a boutique hotel or upmarket B&B and pushed this idea which was accepted by Gary as he couldn’t come up with an alternative plan. The couple finally decided on France (proximity to their children in the UK and good weather) and spent about 18 months viewing 100+ properties in the South of France, from Provence to almost Spain and back, before finally settling (in December 2010) on an old stone house (and former silk farm) in La Bruguiere, a small village about 10 minutes from Uzes, France’s first Duchy and a beautiful little town.

The house renovation took 17 months and they first opened for business in summer 2012. As they end their sixth year in France the couple have no regrets and remain positive about their future.

Jane has finally managed to fulfil one of her childhood dreams of cooking professionally for others and continues to ride her horse. Gary works front of house at Mas d'Augustine their chambres d’hôte and (when asked) offers business advice to friends/associates in their location, whilst amusing himself by playing (bass) in a local French group. The couple recently started an additional business to project manage renovation works/remodelling (and, if requested, provide interior design) of holiday homes for absentee owners.

Life is too short to stand still and wait for it – Jane and Gary are firm believers that life is for the taking. Enjoy Jane's recipes here or spend a couple of nights to savour her cooking first hand.
