Smoked salmon brings back such fond memories for me when I worked on a cruise ship in Alaska in my early twenties. We pretty much had smoked salmon on tap – it was excellent quality and it was bliss! Now, just to be clear, working on cruise ships may sound glamorous, but it its not. At least, it wasn’t for me. I was hired as a photographer, but the small print indicated that I also had to dress up in giant animal outfits and have my picture taken with guests like a port mascot on most days. When we docked in Ketchikan on Wednesdays, I was a beaver (see pics below for proof!); on Thursdays in Juneau, I was either a moose or a polar bear. Every Friday, at the tender port of Sitka, I was a bald eagle… And every second Monday when we docked in Vancouver, I was fully-kitted out as a Mountie, fake rifle included! Thankfully, Saturdays were sea days, so I was spared the humiliation of kids trying to knock my giant beaver head off.

Off-piste, apologies … back to the salad! This has to be one of my favourite salads to throw together. Apart from the delicious, fatty salmon and avocado generously covered in fresh lemon juice, it boasts capers, toasted pine nuts and shaved Parmesan. That’s just about all my favourite ingredients in one fairly posh salad!
