To Assemble

Twirl the trout ribbons into nests and place onto your serving platter. Arrange the cucumber ribbons in spirals and arrange around the trout. Scatter the rest of the ingredients – asparagus, snap peas, baby cucumber rounds and radish slices around the platter and then sprinkle with dill fronds.

Pipe the horseradish cream and avocado crema in alternating dots around the salad. Sprinkle with poppy seeds and serve with lemon wedges on the side. Thinly sliced bruschetta or melba toast will also go well with this salad.
