DelishFish Honey Roast Side of Salmon:
As you may have noticed I do love fish! And, one of the treats I generally buy for Christmas is a large pack of smoked salmon. The sort that is already neatly sliced up and can be used for salads and sandwiches, or maybe for scrambled eggs.
This year, John at DelishFish kindly sent me a side of Honey Roast Salmon – something that he produces every year as a Christmas Special – to see if he could convert me! Now, for a start I love the fish that DelishFish supplies. It’s always fresh, beautifully packaged and has a good shelf life. And, it is usually portioned up into packs for one or two people so that you can make something better than a ready meal with absolutely minimal effort. The Honey Roast Salmon is something different though, designed to be the centrepiece of a holiday feast, it should easily feed 8 to 10 hungry mouths. It is made with a secret recipe, you’ll get a taste of citrus along with moist, tender Scottish salmon and can be eaten hot or cold. And, because it’s not pre-sliced it is quite a substantial dish!
I took mine down to Sussex, home of my friend The-Hedonist, so that we could all enjoy a family feast in the country. They present quite a challenge at meal times. He and his wife are both pescatarian. But their three children have converted over the years and now want meat! Well, this particular dish was enough to satisfy the cravings of even the most die-hard carnivores! Served simply with a watercress and orange salad and some salad potatoes, this was a great, easy meal. Leftovers? Well there were none that day. But, if you do have any left, you could use it to make the most luxurious fishcakes or flake it into some pasta along with a little crème fraiche. Or how about a luxurious cream of salmon soup. Or just use it in sandwiches and salads!
Sides of salmon are available to order for Christmas from DelishFish for £25 - John prepares all his fish in his own smokehouse and shop in Petershead, right by the fish market, so you know you will be getting something VERY special indeed – or pop over to Lavender and Lovage and see if you can win one in time for Christmas;)
