Le Bernardin's 2-salmon mousse


  • Put the wine with ½ tspn salt and the shallots in a large heavy-bottomed pot. Bring to the boil and cook for about 1 min.
  • Add the diced fresh salmon and poach for exactly 40 sec. Drain well and run under cold water. Then drain very well, put in a bowl, cover tightly with clingwrap and refrigerate for 1½ hours.
  • When ready, add the smoked salmon, mayo, lemon juice and chives to the poached salmon with salt and pepper. Mix until well combined – not mashing too much. Then taste for seasoning and refrigerate for at least another 30 mins.
  • Slice the baguette on the diagonal and toast or bake.
  • Serve the baguette with a pot of mousse on the side. To eat, smear on the toast.
