Add ½ a teaspoon of creamed horseradish to ½ a small tub of crème fraîche. Sprinkle in a small pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice then mix well. Taste to check its hot enough. Cut a loaf of ciabatta into 1cm thick slices, toast or griddle them then drizzle over a little extra virgin olive oil. Top with waves of smoked salmon (a 300g pack is perfect here) Add a dollop of horseradish crème fraîche to each toast then snip over ½ a punnet of cress. Finish with a tiny drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a little squeeze of lemon juice. Delicious.
