Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

I enjoy both smoked salmon and beetroot. So, when I saw this Scandinavian inspired recipe I wanted to put it here for safe keeping.

Sarah_Jayne - you are a goddess! Maybe the best recipe I've tried the last couple of years. This was our starter today for a Scandinavia-inspired feast, and it just could not have been easier or more delicious! The silky-smokiness of the salmon with the zesty-bite of the horseradish cream, earthiness of the beetroot and perkiness of the dill is inspired.This is definitely company-worthy and will probably be the starter I make all this year (and the following...). Thank you so much.
