Polenta Triangles with Smoked Salmon

Polenta Triangles with Smoked Salmon

Posted 2018-06-16 by finyfollow

This recipe is made with polenta mixed with mashed potatoes, and as such is quite filling.

Make it as an entre, though I had it as a main, and it is very delicious but filling.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus standing 1 hour
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: About 14 pieces

Ingredients
1 clove garlic, crushed
½ large onion, chopped finely
2 medium potatoes - about 400 g
1 cup chicken stock
¼ cup polenta (thick one is nicer)
50 - 70 g smoked salmon
1 tsp lemon rind
100 ml yogurt
1 tsp dill

Method
  • Put some oil in a small pan. Cook the garlic and onion, stirring until the onion softens.

  • Boil or microwave the potatoes till they are tender. Drain them, and mash.

  • Bring the stock to the boil and gradually add the polenta.

  • Simmer, while stirring often, for about 10 minutes, or until the polenta is soft and thick.


  • Stir in the onion mixture and potato.

  • Spread this mixture into an oiled square cake pan (or lined with baking paper), and cool.


  • Cover it, and put in the fridge until it is firm - this can be made a day ahead.

  • Take the polenta slice out of the pan and cut into quarters, and then again several times until they are cut into triangles.


  • Heat a pan, and add some oil. Cook the polenta squares in batches until they are golden all over, and heated through.


  • Meanwhile cut the salmon to fit the triangles.

  • Top the polenta triangles with salmon, and mix the rind, yogurt and dill, and add this to the top.
