Can you think of a better way to celebrate St Andrew’s day than feasting on Scottish Salmon, after all St Andrew himself was a fisherman. We live in a country blessed with an incredible natural larder of outstanding food, produced by some very outstanding farmers and producers, so why not cook your St Andrew’s day meal with some of the finest ingredients available. Throughout the country and indeed the world, people will be gathering to celebrate the day and many menu’s will feature top quality Scottish Salmon, beef and lamb.
If you’ve been reading my recent posts, you’ll see that I teamed up with Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation and Marine Harvest to learn more about how we produce the wonderful quality salmon that is one of Scotland’s top exports.
Salmon can make a great centre piece for a special meal, but it’s also ideal for casual dining and easy midweek meals. I’ve chosen this Smoked salmon bake as the family’s St Andrew’s Day meal, mainly as I want to encourage you to include more salmon in their weekly meals. You’ll find that both salmon and smoked salmon are very reasonably priced and it can be cooked in a variety of ways with lots of different flavours.
This dish is very quick and easy to make and will make a great family meal.
