Smoked Salmon with Asian Dressing

A mix of chilli, lime, sesame and soy turns a traditional smoked salmon starter into a spicy taste sensation.

Prep Time

        Prep time: 30 minutes, No need to cook
        Yield: Serves 8


        1kg smoked salmon
    •    handful coriander leaves
    •    1/2 cucumber, deseeded and diced
    •    2 large just ripe avocado, peeled, stoned and diced

For the dressing:

    •    zest 2 limes
    •    4 tbsps lime juice
    •    1 tbsp sesame oil
    •    2 tbsps caster sugar
    •    2 tbsps light soy sauce
    •    1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped


  1. Mix the ingredients for the dressing. It will keep in the fridge overnight, although the flavours will get hotter as the chilli sits in the liquid.
  2. To serve, arrange the salmon on plates – it works out at about 3 slices per person. Mix the avocado, cucumber and coriander, then pile or scatter on top. Spoon over a little of the dressing and serve.
