Sam Linsell is a huge talent. Not only at creating recipes, at food styling, at product development, and cookbook writing. She is a warm, clever, funny and lovely person to be with. When I looked for something pink and cool to go with the Môreson Miss Molly Petit Rosé Bubbly, she

[as always] came up with the answer.

What you will need to make a starter snack for 2 people…

150 g of fresh Salmon fillet skinned
1 1/2 T olive oil
1 T of fresh lemon juice
1 T of very finely chopped white parts of spring onions
1/2 t of freshly grated ginger
a good pinch of sea salt flakes
a few drops of sesame oil
1/2 t of finely chopped fresh dill
1/2 t of finely chopped pickled jalapeno chilli

What you’ll do…
Chop the salmon up into a very fine dice and set aside.  In another bowl mix all the other ingredients together and then add the salmon back in. Toss the fish through the dressing and check the seasoning.  Adjust where necessary and then set aside in the fridge for an hour or so before you serve.

Serve on a plate or in a bowl and garnish with a few snipped dill leaves, a few thin slices of spring onion and a light drizzle of olive oil. The beautiful pink colour works well on a blue or grey plate.

Serve with home-style potato crisps which are the perfect textural balance to the salmon. I also like the whole ‘fish & chips’ connotation.
