Ingredients
  • White Wine Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 shallots, peeled and sliced
  • 4 mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups dry white wine
  • 1 1/4 cups clam juice or fish stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Tabasco pepper sauce
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 1 (2pound) fillet of salmon
  • 1/2 cup brunoise of cucumber (small dice)
  • 1/2 cup brunoise of yellow summer squash (small dice)
  • 1/2 cup brunoise of tomato (small dice)
  • 1 small bunch chives, thinly sliced at a diagonal
  • 1 cup chervil leaves
Directions
  • Prepare White Wine Sauce: Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the shallots, mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook until soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Increase heat to high, add the wine and reduce by half. Add the clam juice and again reduce by half. Strain sauce into a clean saucepan and add the cream. Bring to a boil and reduce slightly until sauce begins to thicken. Adjust seasoning with salt, pepper, Tabasco pepper sauce and lemon if needed.

  • Preheat the broiler as hot as possible.

  • Brush 4 large dinner plates lightly with olive oil. Slice the salmon in very thin escalopes and cover each plate completely with the fish.

  • Bring 1 1/2 cups of the White Wine Sauce to a boil and add the cucumber, squash, tomato, and chives. Return to a boil and spoon hot sauce over each plate, covering the salmon completely. Place the plates directly under the broiler and cook 2 to 4 minutes or until sauce begins to bubble and fish is just barely cooked. Serve immediately with chervil sprinkled generously over each dish.
