Cooking Instructions

1. Scrub the potatoes and boil until tender. Drain and cool, then chill. Peel and grate coarsely into a large bowl. Grate in the onion and cold butter. Season to taste and mix well.

2. Heat half the butter in a large nonstick frying pan and pack in the potato mixture. Fry until well browned and crusty, then invert onto a plate. Heat the remaining butter in the pan and return the rösti to the pan to brown the other side. Serve hot, cut into wedges, topped with the smoked salmon, with the salad on the side.

3. To make the salad, toast the sesame seeds in a pan over a medium-high heat until golden brown and starting to pop, about 2 minutes. Toss the spring onions, celery, coriander, chilli, fish sauce, vinegar and lime juice in a large bowl. Season and add the oils. Season again, adding more lime juice or vinegar if you like. Transfer to a bowl or platter and top with the sesame seeds, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
