This is a simple, quick and delicious starter. I’m not a chef by any stretch of the imagination but even I managed to wow the guests with this one. It complemented the curry fish parcels my wife made for the main course perfectly.

This is my go to easy starter-I've made it tons of times. It is ridiculously straight forward to put together and people are always really impressed by it. It's lovely and light too so perfect starter without ruining appetites. Highly recommended - your guests will love it.

This is simply the most divine entree. Served it to 12 guests and it went down a treat. So easy, yet so impressive. Will definitely make again.

Very refreshing and tasty. Bought the largest prawns I could get which gave them a better texture and taste. Salad Dressing was nice and sharp, I don't usually add dressings to salad but this really lifted it so think I will make more of an effort in future. Lovely.

Just made a variation of this. I had no creme fraiche or horseradish sause so instead I used strained yogurt and smoked chipotle sause. I also used salmon fillet flakes instead of smoked and lemon instead of lime. It turned out amazingly! I will have to try the actual recipe when I have the ingredients.

Did this as an early Christmas dinner starter and it was a big hit. They flavours compliment each other perfectly.

Good starter but I think I need to tweak it. Firstly it is actually a very large starter (fine as a lunch) so I will use less of everything; secondly I found the salad dressing slightly too limey! But I think when I have it right for our tastes it will be sublime.

If I don’t want to make the fresh horseradish sauce would a creamy store bought work???

Thanks for your question. The crème fraîche tones down the shop-bought horseradish - using it neat may be a bit overpowering.
