Smoked Salmon & Asparagus Pinsa with Wild Garlic dip


This is where we accidently got all our healthy bits out at once and surprised ourselves with how nice this combination is. 

Some political chap on Blackadder once campaigned for the “compulsory serving of asparagus at breakfast” and if you are really weird you might actually give it a go now. 

Back to real world and this is a great light spring/summer lunch recipe that celebrates Great British produce on board a little bit of Italiano magic.  

Fed up with boring salmon? Head straight to the wonderful Pished Fish and book a taxi for the return journey.
