Oh WOW! that is all I can say about this delightful wee salad, especially the smoked fish! I purchased the smoked fish again at my local Food Assembly this week https://thefoodassembly.com/en/assemblies/7907 in Glasgow from a new Company called The Campsie Glen Smokehouse http://www.campsieglen.co.uk/ , The Seafood Charcutier!

They are a small family run business producing artisanal seafood products. Based in Kirkintilloch, Scotland. Charcuterie is defined as the art of curing, drying and smoking.

They have begun their range with 3 cures. After they rest the salmon, trout, and halibut in their Island, Highland, and Lowland Cures for 7 days, they dry out up to 25% of their moisture whilst smoking with their unique blend of selected kiln dried wood chips. The whole process is completed by hand carving the products into the packs you see below.

Mid week Spicy Superfood Seafood Stir Fry

I picked up some amazing Kalettes from my local Food assembly in Glasgow this week, they were kindly supplied by Donald from Rhone Cottage, (http://www.rhonecottage.co.uk/) they grow their own seasonal produce using only sustainable practises and no artificial fertilisers are used.

I decided to try and stir fry them with some seafood, and the flavour was amazing. Kalettes are a bit like a brussel sprout and Kale in one, also classed as a superfood. Below are the Kalettes.

He also kindly gave me the Kalette Top to try and the leaves are very nice, flavoursome and hold their texture. Here is the Kalette Top.
