An elegant starter for a special dinner or appetizer for a cocktail party, a fish terrine is made from a combination of seafood and vegetables and has a coarser texture than a mousse.
It’s ideal to serve among other hors d’oeuvres or as a complement to a fine French meal. While traditional terrines were made from a meat mixture and baked in an earthenware mold with a tight lid, all sorts of other terrines have evolved from this idea, including ones with fish, poultry, vegetables and lamb. Terrines from Les Petits Cochons are made with non-meat ingredients.
The company’s luscious Mini Smoked Salmon Terrines are made of wild smoked salmon caught in the Pacific Ocean, garnished with garden vegetables and seasoned with tarragon. Light and spreadable for easy enjoyment on mini toasts or crackers, this terrine pairs beautifully with a dry, sparkling white wine with a subtle creamy and nutty flavor or a light-bodied red wine with herbal notes.
