  • 160g pack hot-smoked salmon
  • 2 tsp hot horseradish
    Horseradish root on a wooden chopping board


    hors rad-ish

    Horseradish root is larger than an ordinary radish, and has a hot, peppery flavour.


  • juice half lemon



    Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…

  • 200g tub full-fat soft cheese
  • half 30g/1oz bag chives, finely snipped
  • 400g sliced smoked salmon
  • 200g bag mixed leaves
  • half 30g/1oz bag chives, thickly snipped
  • your favourite dressing
  • melba toast, to serve


  1. Flake the hot-smoked salmon into a bowl, discarding the skin. Add the horseradish, lemon juice, soft cheese, finely snipped chives and some seasoning and beat well until combined to a rough mousse texture.

  2. Lay 2 sheets of cling film overlapping on your work surface, then lay the sliced smoked salmon out to make a rectangle about 20 x 50cm. Dollop the hot-smoked salmon mix over and gently spread over evenly. Use the edge of the cling film to roll the long side of the rectangle into itself, then roll up like a Swiss roll. Wrap in the film, twisting the ends like a cracker to secure and hold the shape. Freeze for up to a month.

  3. Transfer the roll from the freezer to the fridge the day before you want to serve it. While still semi-frozen, cut into thick slices, lay on a tray, then leave to defrost completely in the fridge. Serve with leaves mixed with chives and a little dressing, and some melba toast.

Made this recently as one of the canapés for handing round before a Burns Night supper. Everyone loved it! I love the way you can make it ages in advance. It looks superb as well.

I made this for starters on Christmas day, it was delicious!!! And i'll definately make it again. I put some prawns on the side also with a little seafood sauce, just to make it look more wow. The horseradish goes perfectly with the smoked salmon.
