  • Cream Cheese
  • 1 Lemon
  • Smoked Salmon

Instructions

Step 1

The good news is that there are only 7 ingredients and they keep for ages so you can store them all the time. The absolute key is a nice ripe avocado.

Step 5

You need to slice it up as thin as possible. Nothing worse than a big chunky piece of onion.

Step 6

Peel the skin off the avocado. Like I said, if the avocado is hard and not ripe you are pretty much screwed before you even start.

Step 11

Squeeze the other half over the avocado so as it doesn't lose it's colour.

Step 15

You want enough to cover it but don't have it overloaded in cheese. A nice thin layer would do.

Step 16

Place the avocados on top. Try and keep them straight for the presentation.
