Not Any Sunday Car Booty

Very disappointing boot sale this morning.  Horrible weather, hardly any sellers, and I only managed to buy a pair of shoes for 50p to sell, and a pretty ‘Shoe Fund’ money box for 50p.  Wish I hadn’t bothered getting up so early now. 

So instead of my usual booty post, here is a lovely salmon recipe that I tried this week, which was really tasty, and felt like summer food.

New potato & grilled salmon salad with Dijon & parsley dressing

Serves 8

1.25kg new potatoes

4 salmon fillets (I used the slightly smoked ones, which worked well in this receipe against all the other strong flavours)

40g capers, drained and rinsed

150g cornichons, sliced

6 spring onions, sliced

3 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley

For the dressing:

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp white wine vinegar

large pinch sugar

4 tbsp olive oil

1.   Place potatoes in pan of boiling water and cook for 15 to 20 mins until tender.  Drain and allow to cool for a few mins.  Heat grill to high, season salmon and grill for 8 to 10 mins until just cooked through.

2.   Toss poatoes thorugh with cpapers, cornichons and spring onions, and season.  Mix mustard togetehr with vinegar and sugar, and add oil gradually to form a thick vinaigrette.  Season well.

3. When salmon is cooked through, flake into large pieces.  Dress potatoes with vinaigrette, scatter over the parsley and add the salmon flakes.  Serve warm immediately, or leave to cool and serve at room temp.

Well worth a try.

  1. That looks very nice,it does look like a nice Summer supper or lazy lunch, I love salmon, will give it a try : )

  2. That recipe sounds really tasty – I will have to give it a try. Agree with the booty this weekend … didn’t bother this morning as it is hacking it down here and yesterday although dry was disappointing … the grands got a few toys and my only purchase was another Poole coffee set in the same colour as last weeks, what were we saying about themes !!

  3. Yum, that looks delicious! Weather’s not too bad here but lacking the motivation to get dressed. Have a great weekend.

  4. I went to a very poor boot sales this morning too – I felt very sorry for the vendors as it was so cold, but the “tat” was truly tatty this morning. xxx
