Really easy to prepare but looks super posh. Great for a light supper for two or a starter for 4-6 people.
400g Smoked Salmon
Capers – the smaller the better
1 handful fresh mint, chopped
1 handful fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
Black pepper, to grind
For the dressing:
1 finely chopped shallot
3 tbsp rapeseed oil
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp salt
To make the dressing put all of the ingredients into a jamjar or sealable container and shake vigorously until the dressing emulsifies, it will look cloudy once it has. Allow the dressing to rest for at least an hour.
Tear the salmon into strips and lay out on a large plate. Use a potato peeler to cut the cucumber into ribbons and lay on the plate too, sprinkle the herbs on top and then use your hands to mix the ingredients a little. Scatter the capers and lemon zest on top then drizzle over the dressing.
Fishy fishy goodness. Yum.
