Smoked salmon with goat cheese, beetroot, apple and radishes
Let the Christmas countdown begin! I’ve got 4 more recipes for you guys this month. 3 of which are featured in the Carraig Donn Christmas Lookbook 2016! I’m going to start at the beginning with a great first course: Smoked salmon with goat cheese, beetroot, apple and radishes. Being in charge of the Christmas starter is never an easy job. And it may seem hard to get creative or original. But it’s actually one of the courses you can get most creative with, as well as with appetisers.
I hope you’ll enjoy this starter as much as I did. You won’t need to put in a lot of effort and can make it on the spot, which will contribute even more to the freshness of it.
I believe in having a very balanced combination of meals so I recommend not starting out with a very heavy starter/first course. Especially if you have started of your Christmas party with some appetisers already. Not serving any appetisers? You can make this starter richer by serving it with miniature bowls of soup, like you can see in my beetroot soup recipe, which goes really well with this salmon starter.
Wondering where those gorgeous bowls and plates come from? Have a look at my post about my favourite Christmas plates & decorations from Carraig Donn.
