  2. Mix the salmon and spring onions together and season with pepper only. Spread onto the bread. Mix together the cottage cheese, horseradish (if using) and cheese. Spoon on top of the salmon.
  3. Grill on a high shelf for 1 min, then lower the shelf and continue to grill for a further 3-4 mins or until the topping starts to brown. Serve straight away with a watercress and spinach salad.

Made it exactly as recipe. So easy and great flavours - the cottage cheese makes the topping light, which contrasts with the salmon, and the horseradish gives a touch of heat and depth. Will certainly do again - it could easily be tarted up to make an unusual starter.

Forgot to say, never have horseradish in so have never had it with that.

I tried it as per the recipe, and it was gorgeous! Great for using as a Weight Watchers meal; relatively low in Saturated Fat. No doubt I'll have it again and again......

Great for quick after - work meal or late holiday breakfast. Spinach salad does complement this dish. I would skip cheese and horseradish and use deseeded cucumber instead. A little bit of dijon mustard will do greatly.
