Very tasty, and surprisingly filling. I followed the recipe exactly, and used tinned salmon.

Really enjoyed this recipe. I bought cold smoked salmon. Couldn't get courgettes so used mange tout. Didn't use onion as suggested by previous post. Balsamic vinegar gives a sharpness. Surprisingly filling!

Enjoyed this dish - second time I omitted the onion & enjoyed it more. I used salmon ready poached in lemon & dill.
