Salmon & Cream Cheese Domes (Keto)

Salmon Cream Cheese

Need a pretty-looking appetiser in a hurry? These little domes are simply made using seasoned cream cheese wrapped in smoked salmon. To achieve the cute ‘dome’ shape, I shaped them using clingfilm-lined mini pudding (dariole) moulds, then tipped them out upside down before serving, making them an ideal ‘make-ahead’ appetiser. Try these with slices of toasted Quick Chia Keto Bread (not included in macros) for a lovely, fresh appetiser for four people.
