Salmon salad on a Tomato Carpaccio

Salmon salad on a tomato carpaccio

We really enjoy smoked salmon.  I have already posted on one platter I did teamed up with corn and crispy roastpotatoes .  This one was a smoked salmon salad on a tomato Carpaccio – ie a bed of thinly sliced tomatoes.

I prepped my salad ie cut/sliced:

Red chilli
Gherkins
Red Onion
Tomatoes

I put the layer of tomatoes down first, then mixed up the other things with flaked smoked salmon (not canned – hot smoked).


For the dressing, rather than mixing it up into one combined dressing I just dotted some horseradish sauce, chilli sauce and sweet chilli sauce around along with a drizzle of extra virgain olive oil.  Salt and pepper of course.

I put a few lemon wedges on the plate because I thought they would look pretty – but you could just squeeze the lemon juice over the salad.

It was quick to do, fresh and tasty and best of all even healthy.

  7. What a dazzling presentation. Just beautiful. The idea of dabbing the sauces around the platter is interesting. It allows diners to make the salad as hot or mild as they choose.
