Very Good Shallots, But Be Aware They Are Strong

As anyone who likes shallots may know, they vary in strength. Some are mild, some are slightly tangy, some are strong. These are strong. I eat a lot of them on cheddar cheese topped with potato salad, between cream crackers.

We'll be buying these again and again

hope I was just unlucky with this pack

First time I've bought them online and they were horrid, half the pack was squelchy, almost frothy and no taste except for slight bitterness

Best shallots on sale

So tasty I use them chopped in home made pot-type salads and in cooking wherever onions are indicated.

An aside

This type of shallot is pictured in the 'Larousse Gastronomique' and labelled 'Long Jersey or Brittany Shallot'. They peel easily, are strongly flavoured and full of juice.

Hot Smoked Trout Salad

Hot Smoked Trout Salad

This hot smoked trout salad is fresh, light and full of flavour. Use whatever salad leaves take your fancy - little gem, cos, lollo rosso, baby spinach, watercress, dandelion and beetroot leaves or whatever else you have handy! If you can't find hot smoked trout then simply substitute hot smoked salmon, mackerel, or cold cooked salmon instead. Try this recipe with raspberry or cider vinegar if you can't find apple vinegar with lingonberries.
