Not a huge Jamie Oliver fan but this meal caught my attention and I knew I wanted to make it – soon.
Well, I saw it on TV last night, and made it for dinner tonight :) Happy days!
You’ve got a bed of baby spinach and other salad, whatever you fancy really.
On the top goes an oil and vinegar dressed pile of baby potatoes, boiled in their skins. I added half a bunch of fresh dill, some finely chopped red onion and salt & pepper ( Jamie added capers) It is important to dress the spuds while they are still warm. They will take-up more of the dressing if you do.
Jamie used smoked salmon. I used fresh salmon cutlets, poached and then de-boned and flaked. The fish went on top of the potatoes.
I used horseradish from a jar mixed with sour cream, salt and pepper for my final dressing. The James-meister used fresh horseradish and creme fraiche .
Next time I think I might use smoked salmon. Those cutlets have so many bones. I was petrified of leaving one in and having someone choke on it. Specifically me…
The salad was lovely to eat. A beautiful marriage of flavours. Dill, potato, salmon, all perfect together, and I loved the perky horseradish cream with it.
Absolutely loverly jubberly :)
