Recipe – Smoked Salmon, Dill & Lemon Muffins

Smoked Salmon, Dill & Lemon Muffin

Smoked salmon muffins in bright orange muffin cases. The muffins form a circle around one that has been topped and is under a small glass dome

The weather lately has been so grey and dull, highlighting the fact that we are in the middle of winter here in the UK. This is so typical for mid-February!

But cheer up, Spring is on its way. It won’t be long before the daffodils and crocuses are pushing through the ground to let us know the weather is going to soon warm up!

Nothing says Spring like smoked salmon, dill and lemons and they combine really well to make these easy yet delicious muffins.

Try making them yourself at home and they will reassure you that Spring is indeed on it’s way!
