Cold-smoked salmon sandwiches with avocado and egg mayonnaise

Cold-smoked salmon sandwiches with avocado and egg mayonnaise

Ingredienser

Ingredients (4 servings):
Good-quality bread
300–400 g cold-smoked salmon
1 avocado
Mayonnaise:
1 egg
2 ss vinegar
A little salt and freshly ground pepper
Approx. 5–8 drops Tabasco sauce
1 ss Dijon mustard
approx. 0.5 l neutral oil (sunflower, corn, rapeseed)
4 hard-boiled eggs
Serve with lemon or lime on the side.
Romaine lettuce
Green spices

Fremgangsmåte

Method:
“Egg mayonnaise 1”

Use a cylinder bowl.

Add the egg, mustard, Tabasco, vinegar, salt and pepper into the bowl. Then pour in the oil – wait 1 minute for the oil to float to the top.

Take a hand blender and, making sure it touches the bottom of the bowl, whisk the mixture. The hand blender will ensure that the ingredients are mixed into a creamy consistency. Once you have the right consistency, carefully move the blender up and down a little in the bowl until the mayonnaise is nice and rich. Then add the hard-boiled and shelled eggs to the mayonnaise and whisk again with the hand blender until you have an even consistency.

This is my preferred method.

“Egg mayonnaise 2”
Add all of the ingredients into a bowl, except for the oil.

Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together and pour in the oil in a thin stream to dilute the mixture, while stirring constantly. Once you have a creamy mayonnaise, mash the hard-boiled and shelled eggs up in the mayonnaise.
Wash the salad, using a salad spinner to get rid of most of the water, if you have one


Spread the egg mayonnaise on the bread slices and place the salted and smoked salmon on top. Serve with avocado wedges/cubes, egg mayonnaise and spicy greens.

Spinach soup with poached eggs and cold-smoked salmon

Spinach soup with poached eggs and cold-smoked salmon

Ingredienser

Ingredients (4 servings):
Spinach soup
100 g spinach
2 shallots
2 garlic cloves
30 g butter
5 dl chicken or vegetable stock
1-2 dl cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Dairy butter
Or corn starch
Poached eggs
1 l water
4 eggs
4 ss apple cider vinegar
Salt
Approx. 200 g cold-smoked salmon
Or croutons

Fremgangsmåte

Boil 1 litre of water together with the vinegar. Break the eggs into a cup. Whisk the water quickly in one direction. Add the eggs into the pot while the water circulates, take the pan off the heat, and let the eggs simmer until they are as poached as you want them. Once the eggs are done, take them out of the water, sprinkle a little salt on them, and set them on a plate by the stove – leave them there until the soup is ready so they don’t get too cold.


Cut the smoked salmon to the size you want.


Wash the spinach and use a salad spinner to get rid of most of the water.


Finely chop the shallots and garlic – divide them into two piles.
Whisk one half of the onions and garlic into butter. Once the shallots have turned clear, add the spinach. Stir and add salt/pepper – set it in the fridge to cool – it is important they cool quickly so that the spinach/soup maintains the nicest colour possible.


The other half of the shallots and garlic should also be fried in a pan with butter. Once the onions have turned clear, add the stock. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for five minutes. Then add cream, let it reduce a little, and add the cold butter. Use a blender to mix it until it’s an evenly consistent soup. If the consistency is a little thin, thicken the soup with a little corn starch. Just before serving, add the spinach, and blend again until you have a smooth, green soup. Pour the soup into a pot, bring it to the boil and season – serve with the poached eggs and croutons if you want.
