Had this as our starter for New Years day the second year in a row and our guests loved it. We served on Jacob's salt and pepper thins and could have just devoured this all day! Definitely a keeper

I served this lovely starter to friends for a pre Christmas celebration. I was able to prepare in advance which made the whole occasion more relaxed. I added some chilli sauce to the dressing and a green salad with slices of advocado and this enhanced the overall presentation and textureto the dish. Easy - just the job. Will make again.

Superb starter for a dinner party without a lot of hassle. Attractive on the plate and appreciated by everyone.

Lovely, easy recipe and with some lovely presentation makes for an impressive starter. We even had it a light fish starter on christmas day but perfect in summer to!

A simple to prepare and simply delicious recipe! Dried herbs work just as well as fresh if you can't get fresh. The aioli is scrumptious either way.

Fresh tarragon would work well, though it would not taste the same.

Flat leaf parsley would work well.

buy it in a jar - the dried stuff is very good if you can't get hold of fresh!

Any ideas what I could use instead of dill if I can't get hold of any? Trying my best but not found any yet!
