Supper Freek's Rillettes de saumon

Rillettes de saumon

This is a summery version of a classic French dish. It's fresh and full of flavours, we love it! If you want to try it from us check the dates for our next events.

Ingredients for 6 people

- 400g of fresh salmon
- 200g of smoked salmon
- 80g of crème fraiche
- 125g of plain yoghurt (ideally one with a creamy texture)
- 1 lemon
- 1 table spoon of dill finely chopped
- salt, pepper
- ingredients to prepare a court-bouillon (onion, bay leaf, white wine,...)


Poached the fresh salmon in the court-bouillon for 10 minutes. During that time, chop finely the smoked salmon. Once the fresh salmon is cooked, crumble it with a fork and leave it on the side until it gets cold.

Rillettes de saumon - preparation

In a bowl, mix the crumbled fresh salmon, the smoked salmon, the crème fraiche, 2/3 of the yoghurt, the juice of ½ a lemon, the dill, salt and pepper. Taste and add some pepper or lemon if needed. If the rillettes look dry, add the remaining yoghurt too.

Keep in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving. You can prepare it the day before too, just keep it in the fridge.

It is great either as an aperitif with some fresh bread (like we serve it at Supper Freek), or as a starter, served with a lamb lettuce and lemon dressing salad and some bread toasts.

Bon appetit!

What Our Guests Say About Us

I enjoyed the 'Jamie like' feel, the simple focus on gathering people around good food to share a good time. I liked the attention to detail but also the fact that the presentation was not over the top and that the food and flavour were really the center of attention. Alice D.
Great food, great company....the value (price, quality, company...) for money is far much better than any restaurants.... and I know what I am talking about as i live my food and restaurants ;-) all the best to Supper Freek!! Guillaume D.
Fantastic experience in every sense. The blend of French and Greek cuisines works wonders. And with 2 great hosts/chefs like Julie and Panos, it makes the Supper Freek even more meaningful! Miguel S.
I loved how the hosts presented each dish! This was the smallest supper club I've been to and I really enjoyed the intimacy. Great overall attention to detail and delicious food! Highly recommended. Kendall M.
Laid back atmosphere, very good cooking. Marrying French and Greek actually works! Thierry M.
