Poached Salmon Salad
32C today ... which is hot hot hot for us folks here in the UK. It's still 30C and it's now gone 6 o'clock ... and I'm fencing in an hour!
Yeah, dressing up in ballistic material clothing and running around with a floppy sword for a couple of hours. Better still, for foil or sabre you've to wear a conductive jacket as well!
I fence foil and epee (no need for the metal jacket in epee since everything is on target, rather than just the area marked out by the jacket), so I think it'll be epee tonight ...
I had a light soup made up - it was just tenderstem broccoli stems, some onion, garlic and a little sea salt, but it's too hot for soup. My idea was to have the smoked salmon as a starter and then drop a few sauté potatoes into the soup.
Forget the soup ... I froze ours and combined the starter with some potatoes for a light meal.
You need: smoked salmon, boiled egg, tomato, cucumber, pickles: gherkin and beetroot, sour cream, dill, chives, black pepper and a little sea salt. Potato, lightly boiled and sautéed in butter.
Arrange, slosh a little olive oil over and you're done.
