As I have already previously stated, smoked salmon is one of the fine delicacies of Scotland that I have fallen in love with. It is better than the variety I have back in the States, and tastes more fresh and less “fishy.” I have three different plates around St Andrews that offer this local favourite.
My absolute favourite smoked salmon dish I have yet to date. North Point is an adorable cafe on the end of North St. that claims Kate and William would get their coffee there together! I ordered their peppermint tea, toast, scrambled eggs, and smoked salmon. It was HEAVEN. The sandwich bread over here is also better, it tastes less like card board, and is more fresh. Huge dollops of butter were added on top of the toast to slowly melt on top. The eggs were perfectly well done, and were not too runny. And the smoked salmon was the star of the show. Perfectly salty and it melted in my mouth!
I have already posted about Bibi’s, one of my first finds in St Andrews. It is located on the opposite end of North St as North Point. This salad was a delicious medley of vegetables topped with potato salad, avocado, smoked salmon, and a lemony vinaigrette. The richness of the salmon and avocado, was well balanced with the crisp vegetables, and the tang of the dressing.
What better way to eat smoked salmon than on a bagel? Gorgeous tops their toasted bagel with smoked salmon, greens, cream cheese, and a balsamic drizzle, which puts this sandwich on another level.
