Chef Mark Moriarty and Marks and Spencer have created a series of recipes focusing on the festive season.

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.
