These smoked salmon tartlets are incredibly easy to make and are also gluten free

Gluten-free, tasty and easy, what more could you ask for in a canape!? We've got lots of party food recipes but this is one of our favourites. If you need to make them vegetarian then you can swap the salmon for roasted butternut squash. You could also experiment with other flavours like roasted courgette, smoked mackerel or sun-dried tomatoes.

If you have smoked salmon leftover from the Christmas period then these are a great way to use it up. We also have other smoked salmon recipes if you're looking for more ways.

Want to get ahead? You can also freeze them after baking (without the creme fraiche topping). Just defrost and bring to room temperature before serving.

For those on a low-calorie diet or looking for low calorie meals, these are only 85 calories per serving. Though these gluten-free smoked salmon tartlets are so good it will be difficult to just eat one!
