Smoked salmon with avocado, cucumber salad and vinaigrette

Not yet rated

The smoky, saline flesh of the salmon works beautifully with the zesty umami flavours of the vinaigrette. The rich creamy avocado is a match made in heaven for the fish while the cucumber and radish are a refreshing, balancing foil. This smoked salmon salad recipe from Martin Wishart is a simple yet impressive start to any meal.

Smoked salmon



Remove the seeds and finely chop the chilli. Mix all the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a bowl and leave for a few hours for the chilli to infuse
Peel the cucumber, cut it in half lengthways then remove the seeds by scraping down the inside with a teaspoon. Lightly sprinkle the cucumber with table salt and leave to purge for 20 minutes
Wash the cucumber under cold running water and cut into thin slices. Top and tail the radishes and slice thinly. Cut the avocados in half, peel, remove the stones, and then cut each half into 1cm dice
Slice the salmon finely, then arrange either on individual plates or a large platter, placing the avocado, radish, cucumber and coriander on the salmon. Spoon the vinaigrette over the top and serve

Although steeped in the techniques of the classical French kitchen, Martin Wishart’s culinary imagination has a distinctly contemporary edge.
