First, lightly pickle the radish slices by putting them in a small bowl with the vinegar for at least 30 mins. Meanwhile, mix the horseradish with the whipped cream in a small bowl and season with salt.
Lay 100g of the long salmon slices on 4 rectangular plates in a neat rectangle shape. Put 3 discs of beetroot on top of the salmon in different places. Arrange about 6 slices of the pickled radish around the salmon too. Add a few orange segments and some of the preserved lemon.
Next, shape the horseradish into quenelles by using 2 teaspoons to scoop and roll it. Put 3 quenelles on each plate. Finally, scatter with the pea shoots, and drizzle over a little oil before serving.
HorseradishMake your own horseradish cream if you can, otherwise buy the best you can find for a stronger flavour.
Get aheadAll the individual components can be prepped a day ahead and stored in separate containers in the fridge overnight. You can also arrange the salmon on serving plates and wrap in cling film, ready to serve.
