For a Christmas starter recipe to wow your guests, Mark’s Smoked Salmon & Prawn Bites are quick and easy to assemble while being packed full of flavour and can be re-created as handy bites throughout the festive season for quick and easy party food, New Year’s Eve canapés or an added treat to a family brunch.

This recipe focuses on the clever combination of simple yet flavoursome ingredients for a truly delicious and luxurious dish with minimal ingredients.

Salmon & Prawn Bites

Ingredients:

200g M&S Collection smoked salmon
200g cooked prawns
3 tbsp M&S seafood sauce
Handful Cook With M&S chives, chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp tabasco sauce

Method:

1. Roll some clingfilm on a board, layer the smoked salmon slices across, making sure the slices slightly overlap
2. Chop the prawns into small chunks, season with the seafood sauce, chives, lemon juice and tabasco
3. Spoon the prawn mix in a line along the middle of the salmon
4. Roll the salmon into a sausage shape, squeezing both ends tightly. Leave in the fridge for an hour
5. Slice the roll using a sharp knife, creating little bites of smoked salmon with prawn filling
