Potato Salad

I suggest you buy these ingredients on pay day when your bank account is fully stocked!

Makes approximately 4 portions


  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled, boiled and cut into cubes
  • 50 g fresh chives, snipped
  • olive oil to drizzle
  • 100 g smoked salmon trout ribbons

  • chicken eggs, chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • fennel to garnish
  • lemon wedges
  • salt and pepper


  1. Mix potatoes, chives and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and set aside for flavour to develop.

  3. Serve with pan-seared Norwegian salmon and fresh green beans with beurre blanc.
