8 large slices smoked Irish salmon
12 tablespoons Irish crab white meat
6 tablespoon Marie Rose Sauce (see recipe)
½ finely diced red chilli – optional
Juice of ½ lime
Lime zest and wedges
Lime and chilli dressing (See recipe)


• Cut a small square piece of cling film / food wrap and use to line the inside of the mould.

• Cut the smoked salmon into wide slices, and press into the inside of the mould - leave no gaps showing, as the smoked salmon will create the outer layer of the parcel.

• Mix the Marie Rose sauce with the crabmeat, lime juice and chilli, season with salt and pepper and mix together gently.

• Use a spoon to place the crabmeat into the inside of the smoked salmon mould and press down firmly with the back of the spoon until it is nearly full. Fold the remaining pieces of salmon over the crabmeat and press firmly.
