Scrambled Free Range Egg and Purple Potato
1 small bunch watercress
2 small purple potatoes, finely sliced, dried, then deep fried at 160 until crispy
30 ml cream
Place the salmon in the oven on greaseproof paper, cook the salmon for 8-10 minutes at 160 until warm through and just cooked.
While the salmon is cooking add 100g of the seaweed butter to a pan and gently melt, pour in the eggs and gently cook until scrambled, season with sea salt during the process.
Add half the cream to stop the cooking process and taste, if it needs more seaweed butter flavour add more now.
To plate, place the salmon on the plate, the egg beside that and then arrange the potatoes on the top of that, garnish with small bundle of watercress.
