There are links to more smoked salmon recipes at the bottom of this page, but let's start with this one - salmon with avocado. I like to add boiled eggs, but they're optional if you don't want them.
I love smoked salmon - I like it as a sandwich - brown bread and butter with black pepper and lemon - in fish cakes, made into a pate, in a quiche - I could go on.
There is something about smoked salmon that is pure luxury and it's so easy to find.
Many supermarkets have special offers - buy one get one free or a discount - plus you can normally find offcuts - the trimmings - which are great if you're going to chop it up anyway for a pate, fish cakes or quiche.
This recipe is better with proper slices - either packs or a small side - about 400g in total.
It is ideal as an appetiser or a lunch - brown bread and butter would be perfect. I also like to make a very large platter of it and use it as a centrepiece for a buffet. If you prefer, you could put a bed of salad leaves on the plate as a base.

It tastes absolutely gorgeous - it's also Weight Watcher friendly, low carb too.
