Salmon with sea lavenderFor 2 people
how to prepare
- 2 salmon cutlets, approx. 200 g each
- olive oil and butter
- salt and pepper
- 150 g sea lavender
- 150 g marsh samphire
- 8 baby potatoes
- La William Cocktail sauce
- Season salmon cutlets with salt and pepper and brown in hot olive oil. Place in oven dish and continue cooking in a pre-heated oven at 180°C. The fish should still be slightly pink inside.
- Boil potatoes whole, drain and leave to cool. Peel and cut into quarters. Fry in a little oil until golden brown.
- Wash the sea lavender and samphire. Blanch them, separately, for a few seconds in boiling water. Heat through in a little butter just before serving. Mix the sea lavender with the potatoes.
- Serve the salmon with the marsh samphire and potatoes. Garnish with Cocktail sauce.
Tip: Marsh samphire is a leafless plant with strong, juicy, green, branch-like stems. The younger they are, the better they will taste. Sea lavender looks a bit like spinach but has a longer, tougher and meatier leaf. Both vegetables have a subtle briny taste which also goes great with lamb.
With a dash of something special
Cocktail literally means the 'rooster's tail'. The origins of the name are uncertain. Either the colourful – as colourful as roosters' tail feathers – drinks mixed at the time or from the expression 'cock-tailed', used in the 18th century to describe non-pedigree – cross-breed – race horses.
Whatever the origin, and whether it be the drinks, the dishes or the sauces, cocktails always imply a special occasion and usually contain something alcoholic.
Our Cocktail is made with a delicious dash of whisky: our secret for a winning flavour.
