Salmon Rillettes with Coriander Vinaigrette and Golden Trout Roe

The fall brings an abundance of coriander in the estate garden that is collected and dried, then toasted and transformed into vinaigrette bursting with fragrant flavor reminiscent of both citrus peel and sage. When combined with sustainably farmed salmon, our coriander vinaigrette recipe creates a vibrant amuse that complements the structure of our Chardonnay and frames its bright acidity.

Instructions

serves 12

In a stainless steel pot, bring all ingredients for the poaching liquid to a boil, then immediately set aside to steep and cool. When the poaching liquid reaches 115 degrees, add the salmon and let stand to allow it to cook until the fillet is opaque and begins to flake (approximately 7-10 minutes).

To prepare the vinaigrette, combine vinegar, coriander, mustard seeds, mustard, honey, shallot and lemon thyme leaves in a blender. Then, on low speed, slowly incorporate the hazelnut and extra virgin olive oil to emulsify. This vinaigrette can be placed in tightly sealed container and stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

To make the rillettes, remove salmon from the poaching liquid, trim off all skin, grey, and flake into a non-reactive bowl. Add 6 tablespoons of the vinaigrette to the flaked salmon, gently toss and reserve.

To plate, place a quenelle of rillettes on each crostini, garnish with watercress, grapefruit, golden trout roe, pickled red onion and edible flowers.
