  • 1 medium courgette, around 175g, grated
  • 1tbsp Kikkoman Soy Sauce
  • 1tsp freshly grated root ginger
  • 120g hot smoked salmon, flaked
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp ground white pepper
  • 50g butter, melted and cooled
  • 175g natural yogurt
  • 1 medium egg

For the spread

  • 75g cream cheese
  • 1tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1tbsp Kikkoman Soy Sauce


Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan oven) gas 6. Put the grated courgette, Kikkoman Soy Sauce, ginger, salmon, flour and pepper in a bowl. Toss to mix, then make a well in the centre.

In a separate bowl, beat together the cooled butter, yogurt and egg. Pour in the yogurt mixture into the well. Roughly mix together - there should still be some floury patches, which is fine.

Spoon into a six-hole muffin tin, silicone moulds are best as there's no need to line them. Bake for 25-30min or until a skewer pushed into the middle comes out clean.

Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack until just warm. Beat the cream cheese, sweet chilli sauce and Kikkoman Soy Sauce in a small bowl. Serve with the muffins.
