Palmdale Mayo – Perfect with our Smoked Salmon

Did you know that if John Keough, Manager of Palmdale Meats, Poultry and Seafood, didn’t get an apprenticeship as a Butcher when he was 17 – he would be a Chef right now?  In 1978 he was waiting for offers for both apprenticeships. Lucky for all of us he chose being a Butcher – because his love of food and cooking can still be shared by us all, as well giving us, arguably, the best Butcher in Adelaide!

One of his recipes – such a simple one – is a Mayonnaise that goes especially well with Palmdale’s Smoked Salmon and already a favourite with many of John’s customers. Use it spread on a cracker – or spread it over a whole side of Palmdale Salmon before presenting it to the table. Sprinkle it with a few extra whole or chopped capers for an extra special touch.

Palmdale Mayo

Fabulous with many things. Perfect with or for Smoked Salmon


  • 1 cup of a good Mayonnaise or Aioli
  • ½ – 2 teaspoons of minced horseradish (to taste – this is a spicy product so start of with the minimum and work up to YOUR preference)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon of chopped capers (or to taste – careful. These are salty.)


  • Mix well. That’s it 🙂


Further: if you would like to make the Palmdale Mayo into a Salmon Dip, crumble 100-150g of Palmdale Smoked Salmon into it.
