- Salt and pepper
Preparation time: 30 min
Preheat your four at 400 °F
- General preparation
Cut vegetables into cubes of about 1 cm. Peel shallots and slice thinly. Take off the leaves from the stem of tarragon and finely chop them. Cut butter into cubes.
- Vegetable preparation
Bring to a boil a pot of salted water, cook the vegetables separately just a few minutes to preserve their crispness, then plunge into ice water, then drain. In a hot pan, drizzle with olive oil and reheat the vegetables a few minutes just before serving. Season with salt and pepper.
- Salmon preparation
In a hot pan, drizzle some olive oil and sear the salmon steaks on 2 sides. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 5-6 minutes.
- Beurre blanc preparation
In a saucepan combine the shallots, vinegar, white wine. Reduce by about two thirds. Remove from heat and start to stir in the cold butter bit by bit, stirring constantly with a whisk. Using a small strainer, strain the sauce and add the chopped tarragon, let infuse a few minutes.
- To serve
On your plate, place the vegetables using a ring mold, place a salmon steak on top of the vegetables and drizzle with tarragon beurre blanc.
Your beurre blanc can be stabilized by adding a tablespoon of 35% cream to obtain a beurre nantais.
