This is such a delicious traditional Scottish recipe for potted trout and very easy to make. I like it in the Winter months but it is equally good in the warmer months too. It travels well and goes nicely with toast, crackers and oatcakes. We enjoy it on toast triangles with a bowl of warm Scottish soup in the witner months and with a salad in the summer.Read More

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.
salt and pepper
thinely sliced fennel
sliced spring onions
apple cider vinegar
whole salmon piece (we cooked enough for four)
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!
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! 🙂Read More
