Your Roscoff salad is ready.
Remarks
To keep to the true Roscoff spirit, you should use Molène sausages, but if you can't get these, another type (preferably smoked) will do the job.

No clarified butter for stage 4? Use a little salted butter or a neutral-flavoured oil (groundnut, sunflower...) instead.
Keeping
Should be eaten the day it is made, or the following day at the latest (because of the mayonnaise)..

Rolls of fish in smoked ham
Rolls of fish in smoked ham
Pieces of white fish rolled in thinly sliced smoked ham. These rolls are cooked in a little olive oil and served with French beans. The pairing of smoked ham with fish might seem a little strange, but in fact these flavours marry well.
