This is simply the most divine entree. Served it to 12 guests and it went down a treat. So easy, yet so impressive. Will definitely make again.

Made this for a simple Easter Monday lunch. Easy to make and the dressing made it. Will make again

Very refreshing and tasty. Bought the largest prawns I could get which gave them a better texture and taste. Salad Dressing was nice and sharp, I don't usually add dressings to salad but this really lifted it so think I will make more of an effort in future. Lovely.

I've made this a few times for dinner parties & it's always very well received. Look impressive & tastes divine!

Just made a variation of this. I had no creme fraiche or horseradish sause so instead I used strained yogurt and smoked chipotle sause. I also used salmon fillet flakes instead of smoked and lemon instead of lime. It turned out amazingly! I will have to try the actual recipe when I have the ingredients.

Did this as an early Christmas dinner starter and it was a big hit. They flavours compliment each other perfectly.

Good starter but I think I need to tweak it. Firstly it is actually a very large starter (fine as a lunch) so I will use less of everything; secondly I found the salad dressing slightly too limey! But I think when I have it right for our tastes it will be sublime.

Easy to prepare but looks beautiful and has amazing flavor. I made this for a dinner party and the guests loved it. I will make this again for sure!
