  • 4 small thick slices dark grainy bread
  • 1 ripe avocado, stoned and peeled
  • juice 1 lemon
  • 1 large cooked beetroot, diced
  • 140g hot-smoked salmon fillets, broken into chunks
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp hot horseradish sauce
  • 1 small onion, very thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp chopped dill


  1. Toast the bread and put 2 slices on each plate. Mash the avocado with half the lemon juice and season well. Spread the avocado over each slice of toast, then lay the beetroot and salmon on top.

  2. In a small bowl, mix the remaining lemon juice with the crème fraîche and horseradish. Season and mix well to combine. Drizzle over the open-faced sandwiches. Top each slice of toast with a few onion slices and some chopped dill, and serve.
