Intriguing, classical and explosions of flavour in this beautiful dish. Salmon is complemented perfectly with Lemon, Dill, Garlic and Capers – creating a salty, tangy and zesty coating around this tasty fish. If that wasn’t tantalising enough, when you combine with some buttery and chive crushed New Potatoes you’ll feel content and complete. But there’s more tricks up the sleeve! The Sesame Seed Green Beans bring a little extra bite, but most surprising is the wonderfully weird taste and texture of the Black Seaweed Pearls. Think caviar, but more subtly and salty. French restaurant experience… at home! 😋
