warm salmon salad

Ingredients 11
Servings 4
Time 00:20


  • 12
    baby/new potatoes
  • 200
    fresh asparagus or fine beans
  • 2
    150g portions salmon fillet portions
  • 2
  • 200
    baby spinach leaves
  • 2
    egg yolks
  • For the Hollandaise sauce:
  • 2
    egg yolks
  • 45
    lemon juice
  • 125
    butter - cut into small pieces
  • freshly milled salt and pepper


Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender, and then cut them in half when just about ready to serve.

Meanwhile, in another medium pot of salted water, add the salmon, cover and simmer for +-5 minutes. Remove from the pot and place one side. Break into flakes.

Steam the asparagus for no longer than 2 minutes – must still retain the bright green colour and be crisp. Rinse in cold water to prevent them from cooking further (you would do the same for the green beans).

Boil the eggs for +- 5 minutes to make soft boiled eggs. Remove shell and cut into quarters.

For the sauce: Place the yolks and juice in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk to combine and until the mixture start to thicken (+- 5 minutes).

Whisk in the butter bit by bit, making sure each piece in melted before adding more. Remove from the heat from time to time to prevent overcooking. Should be thick and velvety smooth.

Arrange the fish, potatoes, asparagus and eggs on a bed of baby spinach leaves. Serve the hollandaise on the side or dollop onto the salad.

Season with some salt and pepper.

- Poach frozen pink salmon (it’s quite handy to have in the freezer) or you can poach fresh Norwegian salmon or even use smoked salmon.
- Try this salad with gooey poached eggs.
