Red Lentils with Smoked Halibut, Lemon and Horseradish



Author Notes: This is a glorious combination of lentils, smoked fish, lemon and freshly grated horseradish. The radish is so spicy that it crawls up my nose which is great to balance out the smoked fish and the unshakeable red lentils, steady and strong, untouched by all these strong companions!Meike Peters | eat in my kitchen
