I find it difficult to find premium salmon that I really enjoy, so I when I discovered Uig Lodge Scottish Salmon (£17.99 for a small 230g hand sliced salmon pack), I was in foodie Heaven.
Winner of 3 gold stars in the Guild of Fine Food's Great Taste Awards 2014, 2013 and 2011, this salmon really is on another level. Since 1984, Uig Lodge has been hand-producing some of the finest smoked salmon that can be found in Scotland. Using only prime Scottish Atlantic Salmon from RSPCA accredited farms, the smokehouse prides itself in its unique curing process which ensures that Uig Lodge smoked salmon possesses the perfect texture and delicious flavour. Each fish is treated independently and even the prevailing weather conditions at the time of the smoke are taken into consideration to ensure optimal flavour.
The first thing you notice when you open the packet is the rich, smokiness of the salmon. As breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, I used the salmon to make a seriously indulgent Salmon Eggs Benedict. If you've never made this before, I highly recommend it!
If you're feeling really cheeky, compliment your Salmon Eggs Benedict with a chilled glass of sparkling wine. A budget friendly bubbly that I recently discovered is I Heart Cava from I Heart Wines, (available nationwide from Morrisons and Sainsbury's), a light cava that makes a nice alternative to Prosecco.
