Made this last night having read all the positive comments. Was a bit dubious seeing as there are so few ingredients and so little effort required....need'nt have worried.... it was absolutely delicious!!!! My guests couldn't stop praising it. The combination of flavors from the horseradish to the zingy dressing complimented the fish so well, am definitely going to make it again and again and..........!!!!!!! YOU MUST GIVE IT A GO!!!!

I'm not a fan of recipes with honey or too much ginger but I followed the recipe to the letter and this starter was sublime. As others have said, this can be prepared in advance making life easy.

Delicious! Did this as a mothers day starter and it was loved by everyone. We served it with crusy bread and the horseradish cream on the side (not everyone wanted it), Will definitely be making this again. It's on the expensive side (the prawns and salmon cost us £5, but it does look and taste very special)

This was a really tasty starter - lots of taste but without being too filling. I used wild Alaskan salmon so that it was not overpowered by the dressing. Served with two small triangles of very thin sliced buttered brown bread. Nothing left on the plates so will definitely be serving this again.

Looks professional and tastes divine.
My guests loved this spin on the traditional prawn cocktail starter - the horseradish cream give the dish a real sparkle.

Sorry to be negative but the dressing was horrible. The other ingredients are great - you buy them and put them on the plate so no cookery skills needed there but the dressing was really awful and would have spoilt the expensive ingredients.

Sorry Good Food, the first time I haven't enjoyed one of your recipes.

I have made this several times now and it has always been delicious and very well received. A couple of tips worth considering are to be fairly generous with the horseradish sauce (I don't think the amount stated is nearly enough) and don't make the salad dressing very far in advance as the lovely, vibrant green of the lime zest fades really quickly (it still tastes delicious, just doesn't look quite so good). I have also fiddled around adding gravadlax instead of smoked salmon and also adding some crab in with the prawns. All variations have been equally delicious!

Made this for a dinner party and although a simple recipe, it was a great hit, especially the dressing. Everyone agreed there was too much of the horseradish/creme fraiche therefore, in future I will only put half the quantity onto the plate and the other into a small dish for people who want more.

Made this for a Charity dinner last year and everyone loved it. Wiil be making it again for Christmas Dinner starter this year. It is the simplest and most delicious first course I have ever made.

Just made this for two and ate it in the garden on a beautiful evening. Very very tasty. Just right for people like me who are not the best cooks and get flustered with too many courses/too many ingredients/too much cooking etc. My partner (who is rather fussy) said it was sublime. It was really really good. I'm giving it a 4 star just because it's quite expensive to make.
