Smoked salmon isnít just a treat; itís very nutritious, too. Smoked salmon is a great source of many of the vitamins which are necessary for a healthy diet. Itís also good for minerals, including selenium, copper, phosphorus, calcium, iron and zinc. It also adds a little luxury to any meal. This dish makes a wonderful Valentineís Day starter as itís very quick to make, looks gorgeous and tastes utterly sensational.


  • 120g pkt smoked salmon
  • 1tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 2-3tbsp light olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • a pinch of sugar
  • 1tsp capers, drained
  • A handful of fully prepared fresh salad leaves, such as mixed herb salad, Baby leaf pea shoots, or wild rocket (youíll only need about 10g)
  • Ĺ small onion, finely sliced (optional)

If youíre not a big onion fan, or donít fancy them with this delicately-flavoured dish, use snipped chives instead.


  1. Arrange the slices of smoked salmon neatly on each plate.
  2. Whisk together the lemon or lime juice, olive oil, pepper and sugar. Scatter the capers over the salmon, pop a neat pile of salad leaves and onion on top, and, using a teaspoon, drizzle over some of the dressing (put the rest in a small dish to add at the table) and serve at once.
