For the spinach sponge cake (to do the day before) :

200 g spinach leaves + 4 eggs + 80 g flour
+ 80 g of full-fat liquid cream + 2 g of fleur de sel + 2 g of baking soda

For garnish :

290 g of fresh cheese
+ 280 g of Salma Smoked smoked salmon + 3 sprigs of dill + pepper

For the service :

10 g of fresh cheese + a mini-loin of Salma salmon + 4 sprigs of dill


  1. Finely mix the spinach leaves with the liquid cream until you obtain a smooth texture. Mix the flour with the salt and the bicarbonate. Whisk the eggs with a mixer for
    10 minutes. Incorporate the flour-salt-bicarbonate mixture in 3 batches using a spatula
    from the bottom to the top. Add the spinach puree in 3 batches.
  2. Pour the dough onto a baking tray, covered with baking paper. Place in a preheated oven at 170°C (th. 6/7) for 12 minutes.
  3. Dampen a cloth. When the sponge cake is cooked, turn the plate with the sponge cake onto the towel. Remove the baking paper and roll the sponge cake in the cloth.
  4. Chop the dill leaves and mix them with the cream cheese and pepper. Cut the Salma smoked salmon into cubes.
  5. Unroll the sponge cake, place it on baking paper. Spread the cheese mixture on the dough. Smooth and add the diced salmon.
  6. Roll the sponge cake tightly. Close the baking paper around it, wrap the log in the cloth and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or the day before.
  7. The next day, remove the cloth and baking paper. Cut the edges of the log. Place a little cream cheese on the side of the log and “glue” dill leaves. Arrange cubes of salmon loin on top. Cut the remaining loin into thin strips and serve separately.
