Smoked salmon sharing platter

Smoked salmon sharing platter

Prep time: 15 minutes Serves 6-8 as a starter

This simple recipe takes minutes to prepare but is still a real showstopper, perfect for an easy Christmas starter.


1 side smoked salmon, D cut (sliced horizontally)

1 x 85g bag watercress

1 medium sized cucumber

100g radishes 

For the dressing:

2 tbsp crème fraiche

1 tsp honey

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Salt to taste



First make the dressing by combining all ingredients in a small bowl and whisking together.  Set aside while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Next slice the cucumber in half length-ways and use a tea spoon to scoop out the seeds.  Thinly slice the cucumber so that you get nice crescent-shaped pieces.  Thinly slice the radish.

Take a large slate or board and place the side of salmon on top one slice at a time, folding each slice to give the whole dish some height.  Scatter over the watercress, cucumber and radish before drizzling with the dressing and serving to your guests.   Bon appetit!
