    Serves: 4 

    • 2 potatoes
    • 2 small carrots
    • 4 eggs
    • 1/2 onion
    • 250g tinned salmon
    • mayonnaise

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Boil the potatoes and carrots until soft but not mushy, and hard boil the eggs. Separate the egg whites and yolks.
    2. Finely chop the 1/2 onion, place in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Place a plate on top and leave to soak for 5 minutes. This removes some of the bitterness of the onion.
    3. Remove any bones from the tinned salmon and mash with a fork. On a serving plate, spread an even layer of salmon.
    4. Sprinkle the drained onion in an even layer over the salmon, then top this layer with a layer of finely grated egg whites. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise over the egg whites.
    5. Grate the carrot over the top as the next layer, then spread another layer of mayonnaise.
    6. Top this layer with a layer of coarsely grated potato, then a final thin layer of mayonnaise. Finish with a layer of finely crumbled egg yolks. Garnish with fresh thyme, if desired.
