Salmon and asparagus

 
 

Executive Chef Steven Titman shares his recipe for asparagus with cured salmon, a popular dish at Summer Lodge.

 

This summer dish is great as a starter or a main course. The asparagus, combined with the egg dressing, work equally well with any fresh fish simply grilled or from the BBQ. This is a popular dish at Summer Lodge, especially for lunch on Sunday.
