Gentleman's Temptation RECIPE

Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed what have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.

This recipe came from the Crannog Seafood Restaurant situated in Fort William, Scotland -


8oz of strips of Smoked Salmon
2 large onions thinly sliced
1½ oz butter
6 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cut into "matchsticks"
½ pint single cream
Fresh dill


  • Saute onions in 1/2 oz butter until golden, not brown.
  • Remove onions from pan and layer them with the potato and somked salmon in a buttered oven-proof dish, starting and finishing with a layer of potatoes.
  • Dot with butter and place in fairly hot oven (180°C) for 10minutes.
  • Add the remaining cream and cook until potatoes soften - about 40 minutes.
  • Serve at once.
  • A sprinkling of dill on each layer is optional but truly enhances this dish.

Serves 4
