Sommelier’s tip

 Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons

This wine is very present on the palate, forthright and full-bodied, with depth and structure. Its subtle mineral texture in very agreeable on the tongue. It is simple, yet striking, and is a wonderful representative of a classic, premium Chablis.


Preparing the salmon
1. Wash the fish, dry carefully, and roll in food wrap. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Mix the lime zest and onion with the Chablis, lime juice, honey, and olive oil. Season.

2. Cut the salmon into thin slices and arrange on a plate. Drizzle generously with the marinade. Sprinkle with chopped coriander and season with black pepper.


Preparing the butter
In a pan, reduce the lime juice with the zest and leave to cool.
Beat the butter with a hand whisk on a low speed at room temperature, mix with the lime preparation and season with salt and pepper.
Chop the coriander and add to the mixture.
Shape the butter into a log and roll in food wrap, or place in small butter dishes. Leave to firm up in the fridge.


Serve the salmon with the butter and fresh brown bread.
