Recipe: Smoked Salmon and Waffles

After a trip to the North of Scotland to visit Sutherland’s of Portsoy and Glenglassaugh Distillery, I returned with a packet of Glenglassaugh Torfa whisky smoked salmon.  It was my turn for sunday breakfast making, so I thought it was time for waffles and posh ones at that!

Glenglassaugh whisky Scottish Smoked Salmon
Sutherlands of Portsoy have partnered up with nearby distillery, Glenglassaugh, to produce salmon smoked in a traditional kilnhouse over whisky barrel shavings from Glenglassaugh, before being infused with the distilleries only peated expression – Torfa Single Malt. The whisky taste isn’t too strong, enough to notice but not overpower.
