Dinner Tonight: Smoked Salmon with Shrimp, Horseradish Cream and Lime Vinaigrette


Isn't smoked salmon good enough to be on its own? That's the question I asked when I gazed upon this recipe from the BBC, which paired smoked salmon with shrimp. Though it seems a little unnecessary at first, the two items actually play well together; the thinly sliced salty salmon complements the plump sweet shrimp.

Along with two kinds of seafood, there are also two sauces: a horseradish and crème fraiche mixture, and a honey, ginger, and lime dressing. The former is dolloped on the seafood, while the latter is mixed with the greens. While I wasn't worried about any of these elements ruining the dish, I did wonder whether there was too much going on. But by the end, I had intentionally mixed everything together, hoping to scoop up bites with all the different elements.
