We’re keeping our cool at my house, so the prawn and the potato salads are top of my list.

1. Tiger Prawn Salad with Lime and Coriander

Prawns are a must-have on our Christmas table – I’m keen to try this twist on the classic.

2. Beetroot & chive gravlax

Gravlax is a Scandinavian way of preserving fish. It’s not unlike smoked salmon in texture and carries a delicate flavour of beetroot and chive. It also turns the edge of the salmon a lovely gentle pink. It takes only 48 hours and is worth the wait. As long as you use very fresh salmon, it will taste great.
