Turn up the heat – Spotlight on South America

Turn up the heat – Spotlight on South America

The Rio games certainly brought some excitement to our screens recently, and we’re delighted with Team GB’s medal-scooping performances! We thought there was no better time to channel the heat of those long Brazilian nights and bring some of the bright flavours of South America together in one place!

From zippy chilies to street food and tropical bursts, you’ll find fantastic flavour matches for our smoked trout and smoked salmon; from Venezuela to Argentina.


Kiln Roast Salmon Tacos with Mango Salad and Malagueta Chiles

Tacos are synonymous with Mexican cooking, and our version here includes the malagueta chile, a type of pepper commonly used in Brazilian cooking. The Portuguese loved them so much they took them back to Europe, where they became the base of the famous Portuguese piripiri chicken dish.

Our recipe for tacos features our succulent kiln roast salmon, and is a great dish for parties. Mango, sweetcorn, coriander and that pop of chili heat make for a tasty snack or party food.

Venezuelan Cachapas with Cold Smoked Trout, Crowdie & Burnt Corn Salsa

Cachapas are a traditional dish from Venezuela and Columbia, are mini corn pancakes. They’re a very popular street food, prepared fresh daily by roadside vendors. We’ve made ours with cold smoked trout, and they’re great as canapés or a starter. Creamy Scottish Crowdie brings the flavours together perfectly.

Ceviche is a traditional method of marinating and preserving fish, popular in many several Eastern South and Central American countries, Peru being one of its most famous exponents.

We’ve marinated our classic smoked trout in a combination of Pisco (a brandy produced in Peru and Chile), lime juice, Angostura bitters and clementines. This bright dish is not only beautiful to look at, it’s absolutely delicious!

In Argentina, they are often served as starters at festivals, the perfect family dish to share and enjoy!

Don’t be intimidated by making your own pastry- these are quick to make and a filling snack, starter or lunch.
