Warm up afterwards with […]

Potted Hot Smoked Salmon Recipe

December 4th, 2014

Ben Bass’s Potted Smoked Salmon with Lemon Purée and Poppy Seed Bread This is the perfect dish if you are entertaining or wanting to chill out on Boxing Day in front of the TV. I would recommend making it well in advance, or at least a few hours before you plan to serve it so it can reach the right temperature and consistency. You could also substitute the hot salmon with crab meat or smoked mackerel. Potted salmon: 200g hot smoked salmon […]
