Ingredients

Serves 

  • 600 g  new  potatoes
  • 6 free range eggs
  • 4  hot-smoked  salmon  fillets  (about  300 g),  flaked
  • Small  bunch  of  dill,  chopped
  • Small  bunch  of  chives,  snipped
  • 100 g  bag  mixed leaves
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • Handful of baby kale 
  • Good squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard 
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 
  • Sea salt and black pepper 

Method

  1. Put the potatoes into a large saucepan of salted water. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes until just tender. Seven minutes before the end of cooking time, add the eggs to this. Once cooked, remove the eggs to a bowl of ice water, drain the potatoes and allow to cool a little before slicing the potatoes in half and placing them in a large bowl. 
  2. Whisk together the mustard, vinegar and olive oil in a small bowl. Season generously to taste. Crack the eggs all over with the back of a teaspoon and then peel. Slice these in half lengthways. 
  3. Massage the baby kale in a bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil and season. Add the warm potatoes and pour over the dressing. Add the flaked salmon, red onion, dill and chives and mix well. Add the mixed leaves, squeeze over some lemon juice and toss gently through. Place an egg on top of each portion and serve straight away.
