Smoked Salmon with Dill Potatoes and Summer Vegetables

Posted By Kerri

When I thought this up this morning, I was quite pleased with myself. It used up some fridge-bottom ingredients, was fairly quick, used seasonal vegetables with an interesting dressing to bring it all together. Stephen has just pointed out that actually, it’s just a variation on Tuesday’s dinner and, like everything else we’ve eaten this week, features something plonked on top of something else.

None of that really matters if it tastes good though and, luckily for us, this did. The potatoes were boiled with some dill and added to the briefly-cooked peas and asparagus before being tossed with a honey and mustard dressing. The salmon was then plonked on top.

The dressing did work as I thought it would and brought the whole lot together but the asparagus (not part of the original plan) was the real star. Of course, it’s a traditional pairing for smoked salmon but the sweetness of the honey really brought out the grassiness of the asparagus.

We don’t currently have any plans for tomorrow night’s dinner but perhaps I’ll try to think of a different way to present it, even if it does turn out to be just another something on top of something else.

    Sounds delicious. Do I detect a Swedish note here?

    Thanks Jonathan. And yes, there was some Swedish influence. It was going to be more Swedish than that, but we couldn’t find some ingredients at the last minute so improvised. There will probably be some Swedish influence for a while, especially as we are planning to visit a Swedish shop in London soon!
