Dill Salt Method
Combine the dill & salt together in a plastic bag & shake to mix, then pour out onto a tray & allow time to dry.
Salmon Canape Method
Mix the diced smoked salmon with ½ of the chopped chives & fill each cone with the mixture.
In a food processor mix the Fromage de chèvre with the rest of the chives & lemon zest & ½ of the juice from the lemon. Place in a container & allow to chill down & set.
Place the cones in a holder to hold upright, scoop or roll the Fromage de chèvre mix to form small balls & place on top of the cones.
Take the frozen salmon & using a fine microplane shave salmon over the cones, finish by placing a pinch of dill salt on each & serve.
Savoury cones can be purchased at Mercato in Christchurch. Or there are alternatives – Thomas Keller made savour conets famous with his recipe in The French Laundry Cookbook, also they can be produced using tortilla wraps or mountain bread by cutting them out & reshaping & baking in cornet moulds.
French Fromage de chèvre flavour profile works very well with salmon, some particular brands have a distinctive lemon flavour note.
