Salmon & Cucumber Xmas starter
Hi - I am trying to track down Jamie's recipe for this starter whih I saw recently on TV. I remember it was creme fraiche and lemon juice but can't remember how much - does anyone know?
I don't know how to reply to this - but thanks very much Tanya - I really appreciate your help.

Smoked Salmon / Cucumber / Creme Fraiche / Lemon
Jamie placed the slices of salmon on a large platter, used a veg. peeler to make long strands of cucumber and draped these over and around the salmon. He did not use the centre of the cucumber where all the seeds are.
Zest the lemon and put the zest to one side. Put 2 heaped tablespoons of creme fraiche into a bowl, add a pinch of salt, some lemon juice and mix well. Taste and add more lemon juice if necessary. Drizzle over the salmon and cucumber, then sprinkle over the lemon zest, some freshly ground black pepper, and to finish some freshly snipped chives.
