3 Ways with Premium Smoked Salmon

Sourced from the pristine waters of Tasmania, City Larder Premium Atlantic Salmon is first dry-cured then cold-smoked for 24 hours. Each quality fillet is smoked over wood chips sourced from sustainable Victorian highland forests. The result is a premium product infused with a deep, subtle smoked flavour profile, fresh appearance and superior mouthfeel.
Of course, you can serve it straight-up as an entrée for two people or a main course for one. You could add to such classic dishes as pasta, risotto, and quiche or you could try these simple recipes. Enjoy!

white plate with slices of smoked salmon lemon and bread

Classic Smoked Salmon Plate


  • 2 free-range eggs
  • City Larder Premium Smoked Salmon 100g
  • small handful chives, finely chopped
  • ½ shallot, peeled and finely diced
  • capers
  • 1 lemon cheek
  • multi-grain bread, buttered, and crusts removed


  1. Gently lower your eggs into boiling water and cook for 8-9 minutes. Plunge the eggs into a bowl of iced water – this will ensure they don’t form that unpleasant grey ring around the yolk’s edge – and allow to cool.
  2. Once cooled, tap the egg all the way around on a flat surface then dip into water again to easily remove the shell. Separate the whites from the yolks. Push the whites through a metal sieve and place to one side then and do the same with the yolks.
  3. Arrange the slices of smoked salmon onto the plate and top with the finely textured egg, parsley, shallots and capers to taste. Place lemon to one side and buttered bread to another and you’re ready to serve.

    Potato Pancake with Smoked Salmon


    • 3 potatoes medium sized - King Edward or Dutch Cream
    • 30g butter
    • 200g plain flour
    • 2 eggs
    • chives, finely chopped
    • ½ shallot, peeled and finely diced
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • crème fraiche or sour cream
    • City Larder Premium Smoked Salmon 100g


    1. To make the mashed potato, in a medium size pan cover potatoes with cold, well-salted water. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat so the potatoes are just simmering. Depending on the size you’ve cut the potatoes, they’ll take 10-15 minutes to become tender. Once cooked, drain then return to the still-hot pan for a couple of minutes to drive off any excess water then mash (or use ricer/food mill) the potato until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper and allow to cool.
    2. Sieve the flour onto the cooled mash and incorporate well. Blend in the eggs, half the chives, shallot and a little salt then beat the batter until smooth.
    3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add butter and swirl to coat the base then pour in the thick batter. Cook for about 10 min until the underside is golden brown and the top has mostly set. Now comes the fun part, turning it over. Ensure the sides and base is free from sticking and carefully flip the pan over on to a dinner plate. Tip out the pancake, then slide it back into the pan and cook for another 5 minutes, or until golden and fully cooked through.
    4. Meanwhile stir the remaining chives into crème fraiche/sour cream.
    5. Carefully transfer onto a serving board then cut into wedges. Serve with slices of smoked salmon and a quenelle of crème fraiche/sour cream.

      Smoked Salmon Bagel


      • bagel
      • cream cheese
      • City Larder Premium Smoked Salmon 100g
      • capers
      • chives, finely chopped
      • dill, finely chopped


      Select your bagel flavour of choice – see below for additional information.
      To toast or not to toast is the eternal question and ultimately that’s up to you but if you do we recommend letting the bagel cool before you top it with a generous schmear of cream cheese, draped slices of smoked salmon, a sprinkling of punchy capers, some chopped chives and dill. That’s it, you’re good to go.

      As good an indicator of personality as star signs, you can tell a lot about a person from the bagel they choose.
      Plain - bet your favourite ice cream flavour is vanilla, yeah?
      Wholemeal oat – you understand that a multi-hyphenate career is as challenging as it is rewarding.
      Sesame seed - you love puns and think dad jokes are the height of hilarity.
      Poppy seed - you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
      Everything - you hedonist, is there anything you won’t try?
