Horseradish and smoked fish were made to go together, and when combined with waxy potatoes they make a simple but divine salad.

  • 500 grams smoked fish
  • 600 grams waxy new potatoes, scrubbed 
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 inner stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 3 large gherkins, thinly sliced

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp horseradish sauce
  • 1 tsp cold water
  • sea salt & freshly ground pepper   
  1. Dressing: whisk the sour cream in a bowl until smooth then whisk in all remaining ingredients & season.
  2. Remove the skin & bones from the smoked fish and pull fish into large chunks.
