It seems a little dry to me, but I will serve it later for dinner and see what our guests say, I am going to add more lemon juice when I serve it. - 22 Nov 2012


SORRY I teak everything. Find white beans drying to the palate, so used chickpeas, a spoon of whole grain mustard ,a thinly scattering of chopped spring onion. And a amount of mayo depending on the consistancey you need. Salmon thanks to Dunkeld Smokery. - 09 Aug 2015
