A few weeks ago we published our first Readers’ Choice Recipe: and glad to report it has been well received. The idea was Majella’s our Restaurant Editor, and the twitter poll showing the results is below so BIG #thanks to all who took part!
The winning recipe was Salmon Pastrami by Chef Dave Pigram
Salmon pastrami per 1kg of fish
- 100g salt
- 100g sugar
- 20g coriander seeds
- 20g fennel seed
