Sweet Eve strawberries with smoked salmon & cracked pepper

Sweet Eve strawberries with smoked salmon & cracked pepper

This starter may sound unusual, but the delicate, sweet tartness of fresh Sweet Eve strawberries is a perfect foil for the rich, salty oiliness of smoked salmon. The two flavours really complement one another, and the colours of this dish are very appealing.

You can either serve the strawberries and salmon together on a plate, or you could also wrap individual whole strawberries with strips of salmon, and pierce them with cocktail sticks to serve as canapes.

  • Preparation: 15 mins
  • Serves: 4

What you need:

  • 400g of smoked salmon
  • 200g Sweet Eve strawberries
  • Grated black pepper
  • 1 lemon

What you do:

  1. Spread the smoked salmon in equal portions on four plates. Hull the strawberries and slice them into thin slices. Cut the lemon lengthways into four sections.
  2. Scatter the strawberries over the smoked salmon, or arrange them in a spiral round the platter. Grate the black pepper generously over the dish.
  3. Serve with lemon wedges.
