I made this for dinner and it was quite disgusting; I ended up throwing it away in favour of toast! I love dill with fish and make a very similar crab salad but this was just all kinds of wrong! The sour cream did not work at all in this dish and I wasn’t a fan of the raw fennel either. Give this a miss!

Great recipe, it was delicious even though I forgot the cream!

Simple and tasty. A nice light, summer supper or could go well with a bbq!

A really pleasant, light summer meal. Would also work well as a pasta salad for lunch.

This was quite a good basic recipe but needed a bit of a lift. I used plenty of coarse ground red and green pepper, replaced the soured cream with half-fat creme fraiche mixed with the juice and zest of 1/2 lemon and added thinly-sliced celery and radishes for extra crunch. Made a definite improvement but next time I may add a tsp of shop-bought garlic and chilli sauce to the creme fraiche.

This is a delicious meal. A really nice refreshing meal.

Slightly agree with KJF - this needs a *lot* of seasoning - I added a large pinch of salt and a generous amount of salt for just me. But with that seasoning, I thought this was a really light, refreshing pasta dish.

I haven't cooked it yet but would rather do it as pasta salad, with Mayo + creme fraiche.
