We often spend lots of time preparing 'fancy' starters which sometimes disappoint. This easy, quick recipe really delivered; our guests adored it. Not cheap but really delicious. Excellent

This recipe is absolutely divine! The flavours work incredibly well together and balance eachother perfectly. It is a very refreshing starter that looks elegant too. Would recommend this to anyone who loves smoked salmon/prawns or fish in general :)

This was quite a nice dish but I have the best prawn recipe! Its so simple:

get your prawn and put them in a tub or bag or whatever
chop 4 cloves of garlic generous amout of chilli and ginger and some coriander put that in the tub then add a good amount of sweet chilli sauce and shake it up and just leave it to sit with a tid on for about 10mins longer if you wish then fry them not all at once but when they are fryed put them all back in the pan and add some more sweet chilli sauce and then remove from the pan and finally cook some noodles and add some sweet chilli sauce to those and serve with the prawns its seroisly the best prawns you will ever have.

This is a brilliant starter. Always a winner even with the girlfriends mother . I would only suggest making double th amount of horseradish sauce.

This is everything a starter should be, simple, elegant with some lovely clean flavours that get the taste buds truly zinging. Made it last night for a small dinner party and it was a big hit.

I prepared this last night for 4 adults & 4 kids - my first attempt! & WOW!! What a flavour combination! Everybody loved it!
I thought though, that the salmon was a little overpowering. Next time, I will try marinated salmon- the taste is much more suttle!

This sounds and looks lovely, my only problem is we don't like horseradisdh. Is there an alternative we could use.

Delicious starter but we think you need to make more of the horseradish sauce to make it perfect.

This was a remarkably simple yet delicious dish especially with the two different sauces.

I've have served it twice with great reactions.

Doing this tonight as a starter before beef wellington. Looks ideal as it is not too heavy, and by all the comments we are sure it will be a success.
