It might seem an odd combination but try it; you’ll not be disappointed.

For two:
Cooking: 12 minutes

  • 2 fillets of salmon skin removed.
  • Sherry glass of whisky.
  • Wine glass of single cream.
  • Butter to pan fry.
  1. Melt butter in small frying pan, add salmon and cook on both sides until cooked.
  2. Remove salmon from pan and keep warm
  3. Add a knob of fresh butter to pan, when melted add whisky, flame off alcohol with lit match (step back to not singe your eyebrows).
  4. When flames have died down take pan off heat, add cream and stir until warmed. 
  5. (Don’t boil sauce as cream might split)
  6. Place salmon on plates, pour over sauce and serve immediately.

Eat with French fries, mashed potato, peas or beans. I know that this recipe has been enjoyed by Stephen’s friends including Olympian Tom Daley and his partner, Screenwriter and director, Dustin Lance Black.

How Is ‘Quaich’ pronounced?https://championsofthequaich.co.uk/2020/08/how-is-quaich-pronounced/ https://championsofthequaich.co.uk/2020/08/how-is-quaich-pronounced/#respond Mon, 03 Aug 2020 16:02:18 +0000 https://championsofthequaich.co.uk/?p=2360 Anyone attending a ‘Champions of the Quaich’ dinner knows that The Quaich is the Scottish ‘cup of friendship’ which is passed round at the start of the evening. But do you know how to pronounce Quaich?

Most people tend to pronounce Quaich as ‘quake’ with a hard ‘k’ sound and, to be fair, that’s pretty close but Scots, including William Buist, are fussy. So, if you want to get it right in time for the next dinner, you’ll have to practice and master the Scottish ‘ch’ sound which is made from the back of the throat and does not have the more clipped sound of the ‘k’.
