Smoked Salmon Roulade with Pear & Orange Salad

This refreshing dish would make an ideal Christmas Day starter – it was created by Gilly Robinson from the Cook’s Place Malton for a Producer’s Night. Cook’s Larder, who hosted the evening, commented: “This was a hit at the Producers night we hosted with Gilly in November. It really does give the WOW factor if you are entertaining or if you want to impress the other half. A good quality Smoked Salmon finishes this dish off, we used Staal Smokehouse’s salmon.
