When buying smoked fish ensure you buy the freshest and moistest — it can make or break this salad. All fish types can be smoked, so the options are endless. If you smoke your own fish, even better. For this salad, it is combined with fresh vegetables and tossed together with lemon aioli. If I have some homegrown tomatoes in the bowl I tend to add a couple of extra ones — I love their sweet flavour right now.
- For the dressing, combine the aioli, lemon and spring onion in a small bowl. Set aside.
- For the salad, combine the pasta, radishes, fish, beans, tomatoes, avocado, spinach, spring onions, and basil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the dressing and carefully mix well.
- Serve on a large platter and garnish with lemon wedges and basil leaves.
