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.
