Made this last night for 12 people as I was asked to do a starter. Took everything with me to the hostesses home and assembled it there. It tastes divine and I put 2 slices of avocado per person on to each plate. Lots of compliments and requests for the recipe. Will do this again.

This is a wonderful light starter & tastes amazing your guests will be thrilled. A great twist on the traditional prawn cocktail. Perfect for dinner parties as can be made & prepared in advance.

Second time with this recipe, prepared at home, then assembled at a friend's for 16 people. I made double the horseradish sauce because it is my favourite part! Great flavours, very popular and easily mobile.

This was superb! Forgot to buy the creme fraiche, so used creamed cheese instead. It was still amazing, everyone loved it!

This is one of the best starters ever! Able to get dressing and horse radish mix ready and put in fridge to easily assemble just before needed. Everyone loved this and will be using again soon I hope!

Made this on Christmas Day and what a success! Made up the dressing and horseradish cream the night before so it was so quick and easy to assemble on the day! Added some avocado slices to each plate and my guests loved it.

Just did a test run of this with a lunch portion and it's great - very simple, easy to make and the different sauces complement each other well.

I plan to make this as a starter on Christmas day as it is light, tasty and the dressing can be made up in advance for a quick plate up.
I prefer the creme fraiche and horseradish sauce from the Mustard Salmon and Veg bake GoodFood recipe.

This is just brilliant! Looks professional, tastes divine and everyone things you're a genius. For those of you who don't like smoked salmon, substitute it for avocado or leave it out all together.
Winner!!
