Number of Servings: 4


    4 ciabatta rolls, about 320g
    1 Tbl olive oil
    1/2 tsp butter
    1 large leek, sliced on an angle
    2 Tbl creme fraiche
    Juice 1 lemon
    Sea salt & freshly cracked white pepper
    1/4 cup chopped rocket
    2 Tbl crushed toasted Bazil nuts
    2 Tbl grated parmesan
    300g hot smoked salmon


Lightly olive oil spray the sliced ciabatta and toast in a sandwich press. Keep warm to serve.

Place a small pot on the stove and bring to medium heat. Add a little olive oil and the butter, then add the leek and cook until soft, without browning. Once soft, add the cream fraiche and half the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, stir well, then remove from heat. Keep warm until ready to serve.

Roughly chop the rocket and put in a bowl with the crushed Brazil nuts and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper and the remaining lemon juice. For a finer pesto mix all ingredients in a food processor.

Break up the salmon into coarse flakes. Top the bruschetta with a spoonful of soused leeks, a generous serve of salmon and top with the pesto.
