This dish is brought to you through a partnership with the local family business H. Forman & Son. Placing freshness at the centre of their mission, H. Forman & Son bring salmon directly from the lochs of Scotland to your table in the shortest amount of time possible. For over a hundred years they have worked hard to provide the highest standard of smoked salmon following a traditional culinary ritual established in 1905.
Whilst this week's salmon comes fresh from Scotland, this beautifully aromatic dish will transport you straight to the Adriatic coastline of north-eastern Italy. Our deliciously fresh pasta parcels encase the most tender pieces of fish, the subtle flavours of which have been drawn out in a meticulous oak-smoking process.
As the homeland of some of the best-loved Italian dishes - with the culinary capital of Bologna nestled at its heart - it is no surprise that tortelloni originates from Emilia-Romagna. As legend has it, this filled pasta variety was inspired by the goddess Venus herself. An innkeeper in Castelfranco Emilia is said to have spied on one of his guests, Venus, through the keyhole of her door. In this partial glimpse he was struck by her beauty and rushed to his kitchen where he created a new form of egg pasta, modelled on the goddess’ naval.
To ensure that you enjoy authentic beachfront dining experience, perhaps waiting for Venus herself to stride forth from the waves, we pair our tortelloni with a tangy lemon butter. The citrus zing of this buttery accompaniment is perfectly counterbalanced by the crisp, salty impression of the pan-fried samphire. To complete this dish, we add a sprinkling of lemon-infused pangrattato (lovely, crisp breadcrumbs) for fragrance and crunch.
