Smoked salmon Scotch eggs Recipe

smoked salmon scotch eggs
Hiya! Today we will discuss about Smoked salmon Scotch eggs Recipe


5 good quality eggs(we used Clarence Court), at room temperature
2 salmonfillets, boneless and skinless, about 240g
200g good quality smoked salmon
1 lemon, zested, ½ juiced, ½ cut into wedges to serve
½ small pack dill, chopped
½ small pack parsley, chopped
1 tbsp capers, chopped
50g plain flour
good pinch cayenne pepper
100g panko breadcrumbs
vegetable oilfor frying
75g mayonnaise


Bring a pan of water to the boil. Once simmering, drop in 4 of the eggs and set a timer for 6 mins. Get a bowl of ice-cold water ready so that once the eggs are done, you can immediately dunk them in to stop them from cooking. Once cool, carefully peel (be patient as you do it as they will be very delicate and the yolks will still be soft). Set aside.

Blitz the salmon, smoked salmon, lemon zest and some seasoning together in a food processor to form a paste, then stir through the herbs and capers. Divide the mixture into four balls. Pat the eggs dry, then flatten a ball in the palm of your hand and tease it around one of the eggs until completely covered. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Set aside.

Get a tray and three shallow bowls. Put the flour in one bowl, stir in the cayenne pepper and season. Crack the remaining egg into another and whisk, then put the breadcrumbs in the final bowl. One by one, dip the Scotch eggs into the flour, egg and then the breadcrumbs. Set aside on the tray.

Fill a heavy-bottomed pan two-thirds with oil and heat to 180C or until a piece of bread browns in 20 seconds. Working in batches, fry the Scotch eggs for 5 mins until deep golden, drain on kitchen paper and sprinkle with flaky sea salt and a little more cayenne. Mix the mayo with the lemon juice, then serve the Scotch eggs alongside with lemon wedges for squeezing over.

Sloppy Joes 20a5200

Sloppy joes

Heat half the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and crumble in the beef mince. Fry for 10 mins, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go, stirring until it browns all over. Tip onto a plate. Heat the rest of the oil in the same pan and fry the onion and pepper for 6-8 mins until softened. Sprinkle in the garlic granules, paprika and sugar, then return the mince and any resting juices back into the pan and stir everything together. Sizzle for 1-2 mins to combine. Splash in the vinegar, then stir through the ketchup and mustard. Pour over the stock and bring to a simmer, then turn down the heat to low and bubble everything gently for 15-20 mins until the mixture is thick and glossy. Taste and season if needed. To freeze, leave to cool completely, then tip into an airtight container or divide between freezer bags and freeze for up to three months. Defrost thoroughly in the fridge overnight and reheat in a pan until piping hot. Toast the burger buns in a hot pan, then fill with the sloppy joe mixture and top with chilli sauce, if you like.

Pea & mint soup with crispy prosciutto strips

Put the leeks, potato and stock in a pan and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 8 mins. Tip in the peas, cover and cook for 5 mins more. Take off the heat and blitz with a hand blender (or in a food processor) until smooth, then stir in the yogurt and mint. Meanwhile, lay the slices of prosciutto in a large non-stick frying pan in a single layer and heat until crisp. Allow to cool a little, then tear into strips, ready to sprinkle over the soup with some ground black pepper. Will keep in the fridge for 2 days.

Chicken & mushroom spud pies

Microwave the potatoes for 10 mins on High, turning after 5 mins, and heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan, then fry the mushrooms over a high heat until golden. Stir in the cornflour, gradually add 100ml milk, then simmer to a smooth sauce. Season to taste, then stir in the chicken and parsley. Scoop most of the potato from the skins, then mash with the remaining milk and some seasoning. Spoon the chicken filling into the shells, top with the mash, then bake for 10 mins until golden and the skins have crisped a little. Serve with green veg or a salad.

smoky paprika seafood rice

Smoky paprika seafood rice

Heat the stock in a large saucepan. Add the saffron to infuse, if you like. Take off the heat and set aside. In a large deep-sided frying pan or paella pan, heat 1 tbsp of the oil. Smash the whole garlic clove and add to the oil. Throw in the prawns and cook for 2 mins until just turning pink but not cooked through. Push to one side of the pan and add the squid to the garlicky oil for 1 min or so, again just to colour. Remove the seafood to a plate. Add the remaining oil to the pan, and cook the onion and celery slowly for 15 mins until very soft and beginning to caramelise. Add the finely chopped garlic, the fennel seeds, tomato purée and paprika, and cook for 5 mins more. Meanwhile, bring the stock to a simmer. Add the rice to the pan with the onion mixture, give everything a good stir, then add the sherry and 1 litre of the hot stock. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 15 mins, shaking the pan from time to time. When the rice is almost cooked but still has a little bite, dot over the prawns, squid and the mussels. Add the cooking juices and the rest of the stock. Cover and cook for 5 mins until the seafood is cooked through, the mussels have opened and the rice is just tender. (You may have to add a splash more water if the rice looks dry.) Discard any mussels that haven’t opened. Sprinkle over some chopped parsley and serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over.
