Ingredients

Carrot Filling:
Pasta Dough:
Red Pepper-Cumin Sauce:

Directions

Grind peppercorns and coriander in coffee grinder until coarse. Put this mixture in a bowl and add dill, salt, and sugar. Coat both sides of salmon with this mix and chill for 1 hour. Rub cure off salmon and dry any moisture with a towel before slicing into 1-inch thick pieces. Heat a couple tablespoons of oil and butter together in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add as many salmon pieces as will fit, and sear until medium rare or cooked to desired degree of doneness, turning pieces when halfway through cooking. Repeat as needed. Serve salmon with Carrot Tortellini and Red Pepper-Cumin Sauce.

Carrot Filling:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Boil carrots until completely cooked, drain, and then dry on a sheet pan in the oven until dried. Puree carrots in a blender while still hot. Add hot browned butter and puree until combined. Season with salt, pepper, and cumin powder, to taste. Set aside until cooled. When cooled, put mixture in a pastry bag.

Pasta Dough:

Put flour and salt in a food processor and blend for 15 seconds. With machine on, add yolks, egg, and oil. When dough starts to form a ball, remove from processor and finish kneading by hand. Wrap dough in plastic and let rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Set the smooth rollers of a pasta maker at the widest setting. Feed dough through the rollers. Reduce setting and repeat process until pasta maker is at narrowest setting. Avoid using too much extra flour, which will make the tortellini hard to close later. Cut pasta sheets into 2-inch circles or squares. Place a teaspoonful of filling in the center. Fold in half to form a half-circle and bring the 2 points of the half-circle together, curling the tortellini around the finger to form a little 'ring,' pinching edges together. You can freeze until ready to cook. To cook, drop tortellini in salted boiling water and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Strain and serve.

Red Pepper-Cumin Sauce:

In a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat, saute shallots and peppers in butter. Add cumin, salt, and pepper, to taste. Deglaze with vinegar and white wine and cook until reduced by 3/4. Add veal stock and simmer slowly for 15 minutes. Strain through a chinois and chill until ready to use.
