Honey Mustard Salmon Salad

Hey everyone! It was so warm yesterday I really fancied a cold salad so I created this delicious salmon salad with a honey mustard dressing. It was served slightly warm and was soooo delicious. You could also have served it up cold if you wanted to.

I used fresh scottish salmon, wild salamon would be best but its quite tricky to get here. The potatoes were boiled then fried in a little butter and the salad was dressed with a simple dressing of yuzu mustard and raw honey. You could use any honey and plain mustard if you wish. It was so delicious!

The yuzu mustard was gifted to me from one of my favourite suppliers of wasabi and yuzu products. I’m just about to put another order in for their products but please check out their link below they are a lovely business and the products are soooo good! You can even grow your own wasabi plant! How cool!

Honey Mustard Salmon Salad

I’ve not added quantities to this recipe because it depends how many people you are feeding. Its very easy to follow without quantities and adjust to your needs. Please just make enough for your own requirements and mix and match the salad item quantities to suit your own tastes.

cubed potatoes

butter

salt and pepper

sliced cucumber

sliced radishes

thinely sliced fennel

sliced spring onions

apple cider vinegar

olive oil

lemon juice

whole salmon piece (we cooked enough for four)

onions

garlic

raw honey

yuzu mustard (or djon mustard)

Start by adding some sliced onions and garlic to a deep casserole dish and dot a little butter around the top. Place the salmon on top of the sliced onion and bake in the oven on a moderate heat for about 20-30minutes until cooked through.

Meanwhile boil the cubed potatoes for about 10 minutes and drain. Heat up a small amount of butter in a cast iron pan and fry the potatoes gently until cooked through.

Add the sliced cucumber, sliced radishes, sliced spring onions and sliced fennel to a bowl and a sprinkle of fresh herbs should you wish. Add in a splash of apple cider vinegar, a sqeueeze of lemon and a drizzle of olive oil. Adjust seasoning to your tastes

Serve up the potatoes as a base, spread some salad on top and flake the salmon on top of the salad. Serve the cooked onions from the base of the casserole dish on top of the salmon and finish with some extra chopped spring onions.

Mix together equal parts of mustard and honey and dot all over the food. Serve and enjoy!


Scottish Haggis Balls

Ok I’ve called these Haggis balls but I did squish them down in the pan to cook easier but you could keep them round and deep fry instead. I just thought they would be a little healthier cooked in the pan. They were delicious and served up with all the classis were a real Scottish treat! 🙂

Beef Noodle Soup

My kids love these the chunky udon noodles, thai flavours and thin strips of beef in this soup. The combination of different flavours and textures are delicious! The beef bone broth is the base of this delicious soup and it adds a delicious flavour and silky texture. You can also adjust the spice level of the soup according to your specific tastes. We like spicy food so I like it hot.

Homemade Butter

There are so many options when it comes to buying butter and we really don’t have to make our own but there’s something deeply satisfying about making your own butter for your kitchen. It’s fun, super easy and you can add other ingredients to the butter to create your own flavoured butters.

All you need is a food mixer or a traditional butter churner and glass. It’s a fun activity for young kids to use the butter churner and it can be quite satisfying for them too to see the final results. They can then go on to make the butter milk pancakes or muffins recipe.

Easy Preserved Lemons

These Preserved Lemons are quite possibly the easiest preserving recipe I have made to date. They are absolutely delicious and I love using preserved lemons in tagines, roast chickens or sliced into thin slices for the top of a fresh seasonal salad. They originated in the Middle East and Mediterranean regions but are now popular throughout the world.
