Dinner Tonight: Potato Salad with Smoked Salmon and Horseradish Crème Fraîche
It was time to eat some smoked fish. I don't know why I've been avoiding it for so long, but after finding this recipe in Jamie Oliver's Jamie at Home, I knew I had a perfect place to start. He pairs the smoked salmon with some boiled potatoes, which may sound a little too simple, but the potatoes are actually given a whole lot of love.
They're boiled until creamy, drained, and then immediately tossed with a vinaigrette. Once cool, they're tossed with fresh dill and drizzled with a crème fraîche and horseradish sauce.
Like most Jamie Oliver recipes, the amounts for some of the ingredients are written out in hilariously vague terms. For the most part, I've tried to be a little more precise, writing down amounts that I actually used. Luckily, this recipe is pretty resilient and will come out well as long as the potatoes are cooked and the smoked salmon is delicious.
