Hot Smoked Salmon, Pappardelle and Garden Greens Salad

IMG_5086

Another find at the wonderful Orange Grove Markets in Lilyfield – the hot smoked salmon stall selling salmon smoked on the stall as you watch! The salmon has a delicious, deeply woody flavour, and is succulent and moist. They also sell olives and smoked prawns and mussels.

I made a lovely simple pasta salad with the salmon fillet and fresh spring salad ingredients.

I combined the flaked salmon fillet with pappardelle, cherry tomatoes on the vine (also from the markets) and a handful of a garden greens from my own garden. I gathered English spinach leaves, wild rocket, radicchio and chives. Sea salt, black pepper and a good drizzle of olive oil was the only dressing necessary as the smoky salmon has such a rich flavour.

Smoked Salmon with Horseradish Cream, Salad Greens and Irish Soda Bread

IMG_6190

This is a simple lunch or dinner for the start of spring, even better served in the garden! Very rustic and easy to prepare. Jamie Oliver was the inspiration.

Just pile smoked salmon onto a platter with tons of greens – I used a selection of lettuces, snow peas and rainbow chard. Serve with horseradish cream:

Mix a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream or creme fraiche with a teaspoon full of creamed horesradish and a little french mustard.

And serve with any good rustic bread –  I love Irish soda bread –  this is the link to the recipe on a previous post:
