Method

 
Preheat oven to 150 ºC.
Toast the 6 slices of white bread very lightly, taking care not to let them brown.
Cut off the crusts and with a serrated knife, cut them in half length ways, it will be quite easy as either side is slightly toasted.
Place them in the oven and let them brown, but be careful, as they catch very easily.
Mousse:
Whip the cream until soft peak.
Whip the goats cheese until soft.
Fold the two into each other, add the chopped dill and season with salt and pepper.
To serve:
Fold a long piece of salmon onto the side of the plate. Scoop a tablespoon of mousse and place it the lower end of the fold and fold the long piece back over it. Don't be too stylised and you can play with this presentation a bit.
Place the melba toast on the plate and a lemon wedge, sprinkle with cracked black pepper and garnish with dill.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
