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.

A refreshing alternative to prawn cocktail, looks and tastes sophisticated enough for any dinner party. Made it for a friend's 30th and everyone loved it. Might do it as a starter on Christmas Day.

Great starter that can be prepared ahead. Loved the horseradish cream!

Did this for neighbour's New Year's Eve dinner party as a starter. Was really impressed and the horseradish with creme fraiche was so good I put double the amount on. Used ordinary prawns rather than large tail on ones and they were just as good if not better. Only thing I would say is to get a good smoked salmon. I used the mild one from Waitrose which has a lovely flavour and isn't too strong and oily.

We had this as a light lunch on Christmas Eve - I just added some avacado and warm crusty bread. It was delicious, looked impressive but was very quick and easy to prepare.

Fantastic starter - easy to prepare - very impressive both in appearance and flavour. I have served it several times and it always succeeds.

Great easy to assemble starter! I used Marks & Spencer exclusive extra large Madagascan Black Tiger Prawns.....£12+ per little box but they certainly got amazing reviews from my Sunday lunch friends and easily served 4 guests. Would certainly make this tasty starter again.

My signature starter for every dinner party I hosted, so easy and impressive! I skip the prawns and add half a teaspoon of red (salmon) caviar on the dollop of horseradish cream to make it extra posh

So easy to make and really delicious. I used rocket salad which added a nice pepper flavour. Yummy!

This went down a storm at a dinner party for 10. I made mine in individual ramekins, which made all 10 a lot easier to refrigerate before hand. The dressing was added just before serving. Delicious. There was also a lot of lime dressing left over at the end, which tastes good added to stir fry's!

Perfect for a dinner party as you can make it ahead of time, everyone loved this, including people who are a bit fussy with flavours.
