Ingredients
  • 2 avocadoes
  • 200g cream cheese
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 tsp horseradish cream
  • salt flakes and freshly-milled black pepper
  • 300g smoked salmon

  • mixed baby herb, to serve
Instructions

1 Halve and tone the avocadoes, then scoop the flesh into a bowl and mash with the cream cheese, half the lemon juice and horseradish. Season with salt and pepper.

2 Arrange the smoked salmon slices on a sheet of cling film forming a 25cm x 15cm rectangle. Spread with the avocado mixture, then roll up. Secure firmly, then chill for 1 hour, until firm.
