    Avocado and Salmon Cocktails

    With a blend of puckery grapefruit, peppery chives, and a hit of smoked salmon, this little starter brings a flavour explosion to the taste buds. Easy to assemble, serve it on a bed of spicy arugula for a pretty summer lunch salad that packs a wallop of brilliance.

    Tip

    Candied salmon is available in many shops and grocery stores and in a variety of flavours. We suggest purchasing a lightly seasoned candied salmon, so it doesn’t overpower the freshness of citrus and avocado
