1. Finely chop the prawns and smoked salmon and place in a bowl with the crabmeat, cream cheese and caviar. Finely grate in the zest from quarter of a lemon and squeeze in the juice from 1 lemon. Add a good pinch of black pepper and mix together well. Spoon into an appropriately sized dish and smooth out nice and evenly – I use a palette or butter knife dipped in hot water to make this process easier. Cover and pop into the fridge until needed.
2. To prep your garnishes, peel the red onion and chop as finely as you can. Deseed and finely slice the chilli. Click the outer stalks off the celery and save for another day. Cut the inner part in half and finely slice it, leaves and all. Pick and roughly chop the dill. Cut the lemons into wedges. Cover and pop it all in the fridge.
ON THE DAY
1. Slice and toast the bread.
2. Before serving, use a regular eating knife to lightly score a criss-cross pattern into the top of the pâté, then drizzle with a little oil and sprinkle from a height with a pinch of cayenne. Either take everything to the table and let people tuck in and help themselves, or take a bit of pride in delicately plating everything up, giving each lucky guest a beautiful quenelle of pâté surrounded by all the garnishes.
