(In English below)

Vous voulez simple, rapide et délicieux? Voilà simple, rapide et délicieux! :0)IMG_5726 _Snapseed

Recette pour 2:

  1. Faites bouillir 5 pommes de terre moyennes (patates rouges comme pour la raclette. Elle ne s’écraseront pas au moment de mélanger les ingredients)
  2. Pendant ce temps, dans un bol, mélangez 4 cuillères à soupe de crème fraiche avec 1/2 cuillère à café de tabasco, un peu de poivre noir, sel, 4 à 6 tranches de saumon fumé d’Ecosse, de l’aneth et de la ciboulette (gardez en un peu pour la décoration), 1/2 oignon rouge coupé en dés
  3. Sortez vos patates de l’eau et coupez les en dés
  4. Mélangez le tout et saupoudrez de graines de sésame noir

Servez quand les patates sont encore tièdes et le saumon glacé!

Recipe for 2:

  1. Boil 5 medium potatoes (red potatoes like the ones you’d use for raclette. the kind that won’t be crushed when you mix them with the rest of the ingredients)
  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix 4 big tablespoons of heavy cream with 1/2 a teaspoon of Tabasco sauce, black pepper, salt, 4-6 slices of Scottish smoked salmon, dill and chives (save a few for garnish), 1/2 red onion (diced)
  3. When your potatoes are ready, dice them and add them to the cream mix
  4. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds, chives and dill. If you have trout or salmon eggs, you can add some of that too!!

Serve when potatoes are still warm and the salmon very cold! The two temperatures will make all the different flavors “explode” in your mouth.IMG_5838 _Snapseed

          1. one of my favourite dinners in the summer is: good cheese, white grapes (juicy and tasty…:::)…and a good glass of white wine…a Sauvignon for example..with a certain “body”..mmm…oh yes, let’s eat less…:)))

        Heading to Paris next week! Any foodie suggestions?

        1. My French Heaven says:

          I never go to Paris, but I remember that there are great little restaurants in the Marais… Sorry I can’t be more helpful. Now if you came down to Bordeaux, that would be a different story altogether… 🙂

          1. Deanna says:

            Thanks! Now I need to plan another trip 🙂

  7. Faut que j’essaye !!!

  11. Farmgirl says:

    I’ll be adding this to my Easter menu! Sounds delicious!

    1. My French Heaven says:

      I fell a little behind in my comments… Did you make it for Easter? How was it?

  12. Easy to make. Looks heavenly. Guess it tastes heavenly too.

    1. My French Heaven says:

      It really does 😉

  13. Steve says:

    How timely, I have all the ingredients on hand today, so will make it tonight. Unfortunately, only Canadian wild sockeye smoked salmon on hand (a little too lean for my taste).

    1. My French Heaven says:

      I’m a little behind in my comments… Did you make it? How was it?

  14. PotSoup says:

    Your posts never cease to leave me hungrier than before. Excellente!

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Sorry 😉

  15. tarynnicole says:

    Tres delicieux! This looks gorgeoous, I can’t wait to make it. xx

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Let me know how you like it 😉

  16. Looks so refreshing, will try this with some local Hebridean smoked salmon – when the weather warms up! Thanks.

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Let me know how it turns out! 😉

  17. Looks delicious! I love the touch of black sesame seeds. Very special!

    1. My French Heaven says:

      Sesame seeds are an easy way to add color and depth I find 🙂

  18. A tempting dish for a meatless Good Friday. Bravo!

  19. Eliza B says:

    Salmon from l’Ecosse truly is the best. I didn’t know about it until I went to France and my famille d’acueille would eat it with blinis. Now, of course, I’m addicted. This looks wonderful, I love the different colors, flavors, and temperatures.

  20. ladyredspecs says:

    You’ve done it again Stephane, perfect food and photos! This will make a delightful a Good Friday lunch, perhaps with a little rocket on the side.

  21. This would be great for my daughter and me. Though it’s hard to get the really good smoked salmon you can get in Europe. There really is a difference.

  22. Gorgeous – potato salad season! I’m making one this weekend, can’t wait.

  23. soonie2 says:

    You got me hungry now!

  24. Darya says:

    Simple, délicieux et joli. Tout ce que j’aime

  25. Love it! Two of my favourite things. Must make some when my chives are fully grown again.

  26. looks so delicious! I will have to try!

  27. looks so delicious! I will have to try!

  28. Dominique says:

    C’est surement délicieux ! Je l’essaierai avec de la truite fumée produite localement. Le goût et la texture de la truite fumée sont différents mais tout à fait délicieux et j’aime utiliser des produits locaux.

  29. Sarah Thomas says:

    It’s been a long time since my last college French class, but I love puzzling out the recipe and then checking the English to see how close I come. Did pretty well this time! Will definitely make this–and enjoy with some sparkling wine (or Champagne!).

  30. Conor Bofin says:

    Lovely recipe. Far too cold for it here in Dublin though. It warmed up to 3 degrees today!

  31. Sarah Thomas says:

    It’s been a long time since that last college French class, but I love taking a few moments to puzzle out the recipe in French before checking how far off I am from the English. Did pretty well this time! Will definitely be making this.

  32. Oh my. This looks delicious!

  33. ary says:

    simple, rapide et delicieux, j’adore ! je retiens la recette pour plus tard

  34. chokadelika says:

    Humm… recette simple mais toujours efficace ! Merci pour le partage… J’ai faim !!

  35. This sounds amazingly good!!
