Fresh from the fridge, the Fortnum & Mason salmon Scotch egg is cool and clean. The soft texture of the salmon is light and strangely refreshing. The breadcrumbs are rolled with sesame seeds for a sweeter casing, resembling the Asian Jin deui (sesame seed ball). A perfect egg sits inside the shell, the large, yellow yolk smiling out at you. Parsley and dill are mixed with the salmon for a soft, sweet taste.
While not strictly a traditional Scotch egg (no meat), I was surprised at how well the salmon and egg combination worked. All kept secret by the crunch of the sesame and breadcrumbs. Served cold, it’s exhilarating.
