Recipe: Galloway Beef Fillet Stuffed With St James Smoked Salmon with Meaux Mustard Mayo, Hickory Glazed Silverskin Onions and Whisky Sauce


  • 4 200g Galloway Beef Fillets
  • 100g St James Smoked Salmon (Man o’ Swords Cure)
  • 50g Meaux Mustard
  • 1tbsp Stock Syrup (equal quantities of sugar and water boiled together)
  • 100g Mayo
  • 5 drops Hickory smoke extract
  • 20 Silverskin Onions, peeled
  • 200ml Chicken Stock
  • 100g Unsalted Butter
  • 300ml Beef Jus
  • 25ml Man O’ Words Whisky
  • 1 Lemon
  • 50ml Cream
  • Sea Salt


  • Begin by cooking the silverskin onions in the chicken stock allowing it to reduce right down. Add 25g of butter and sit to one side
  • To prepare the sauce bring the beef jus up to a boil and reduce it to sauce consistency. Add the whisky but do not burn off the alcohol. Add the juice of 1 lemon, the cream and sea salt to taste. Set the sauce to one side.
  • Before the steaks are cooked ensure they are at room temperature so they cook more evenly. Season the beef heavily with salt and put a heavy pan on the stove to heat up. Once the pan is almost smoking put the steaks in and leave them for 30 seconds. Turn the steak clockwise by a ¼ and leave for another 30 seconds. Turn the steak over and repeat this process on the other side.
  • Remove the steak from the pan and using a sharp knife slice along the middle of the steaks. The salmon can then be put into the middle.
  • Put the steaks onto a tray with a little bit of butter and put into a pre heated oven at 180 for 6 minutes.
  • Once the steaks come out rest them for at least a minute before serving
  • While the steak is cooking the mayonnaise can be made by combining the meaux mustard, mayo base and stock syrup.
  • Once everything is ready the onions can be reheated with the hickory smoke extract and everything can be plated together.
