  • 2 tsp fresh or creamed horseradish

    hors rad-ish

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


  • good squeeze lemon juice
  • 100ml soured cream
  • 200g smoked salmon


  1. Tip the onion and chopped dill into a bowl with the horseradish and lemon juice. Stir through the soured cream, season with a pinch of salt and generous grinding of pepper, and mix well. Can be made a day ahead and kept in the fridge.

  2. Arrange the salmon on a board or plate, scatter with the remaining dill fronds and serve with a grinding of black pepper and the sauce alongside.

I made this for a small dinner party as a starter with homemade rolls. I followed the recipe proportions exactly, just scaled it up for six. It was popular with everyone and one guest even took a copy of the recipe with him. No more to be said!

This was full of flavour and was very popular with our guests on Christmas Day. Served with some homemade soda bread too!

It was really tasty, but I found the amount of red onion very over powering. I would recommend less or even none.

I made this as part of the starter for Christmas dinner-everyone liked it with some soda bread and a glass of bubbly!
