Smoked Salmon Recipe Ideas

Chargrilled Smoked Salmon With Rocket & Parmesan

by James Martin

Serves 2

Preparation time less than 30 mins

Cooking time 10 to 30 mins

55g/2oz fresh parmesan
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
200g/7oz rocket leaves
225g/8oz sliced smoked salmon

1. Using a potato peeler, shave the parmesan into thin strips, set to one side.
2. Mix the olive oil together with the vinegar and some seasoning. Mix into the rocket leaves and place on the plates.
3. Heat a griddle pan to a high heat. Fold each slice of smoked salmon into three to make one thicker slice. Season with black pepper and drizzle on one side with a little olive oil.
4. When the pan is very hot, place the salmon on it, oiled side down, and leave for about 15 seconds and then turn a quarter turn and cook for a further 15 seconds and then remove. Do not turn it over, only cook on one side.
5. Sprinkle the rocket with the parmesan shavings and place the salmon, charred side up, on the top. Serve immediately.

Where is Uig?
location map Uig Lodge  smokehouse
Uig is on the Atlantic coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.

Although on the same latitude as Anchorage, Alaska, the Gulf Stream keeps the area relatively mild and frost-free.

The mild climate and unpolluted water favours an abundance of wildife and game on the islands, particularly the wild Smoked Salmon Recipe Ideas for which Uig is famed.
