St. Patrick’s Day is on 17th March, and is one of the few “national” holidays which is celebrated around the world. The Irish are a far-reaching people, and folks of Irish descent are to be found in most countries. We are everywhere!
Decades ago here in Ireland, it was much more of a Religious Holiday, with attendance at Mass being the focal point of the day. After all, St. Patrick did bring Christianity to our shores. Nowadays, it is a day off work and school, attending your town or village Parade, and in a lot of cases, party time!
Jokes aside, famous landmarks across the world will be “glowing green” for the day and evening. The Chicago River will be dyed green once again. The Eiffel Tower, The Empire State Building, Niagara Falls, The London Eye, Burj Al Arab in Dubai, Table Mountain in South Africa, the Sky Tower in Auckland, and the TV tower in Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, will all be bathed in an Emerald hue this year.
For the recipe challenge, each Judge must post a recipe too, but it will not be included as an entry in the competition.
My recipe is one of those which was borne out of a rummage in the fridge one day, looking for the makings of something for lunch. It is quick, tasty, and filling too. No cooking involved, just good ingredients put together.
Lemon Juice to Taste
*Smoked Irish Salmon means that the fish is of Irish origin, whereas Irish Smoked Salmon just means it was just smoked in Ireland – Not the same at all!!
So, what are you waiting for, get your entry in, you never know, it might be you!
