Newcastle Potted Salmon
Potted Salmon -Very Popular in the 18th Century!
4 6oz (175g) Salmon steaks
1/2 oz. (15g) spices (mixture of ground mace and ground cloves)
White pepper
2oz. (50g) butter
Melted butter


Set the oven to 350F/180C/Gas4.

Wipe the salmon steaks and season with the spices and a little pepper. Place in a well-buttered ovenproof dish and dot with butter. Cover with a lid or piece of foil and bake for 30-40 minutes, occasionally basting the steaks with the liquid.

Lift out the salmon steaks and allow to drain well. Allow to cool a little, then remove all skin and bones and flake the flesh finely.

Place in 4-6 ramekin dishes and press down well. Spoon the melted butter over the fish to seal, and leave to set.

Serve well-chilled, as a started, with buttered, crusty bread or toast!
