Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


Not sure if you mean fresh or smoked, but this recipe uses both >

Salmon Rillettes

from BISTRO by Gerald Hirogoyen (Sunset Books)

13 oz fresh slamon fillet, skin removed
Salt and pepper

1/2 cup plus 1-1/2 Tbs. unsalted butter, very soft
2 eggs
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 Tbs. fresh chives
7 oz smoked salmon (the lox type) cut into small pieces

Buttered, toasted baguette slices

Salt and pepper the salmon fillet and steam until just opaque throughout. Let cool and shred with a fork.

Whisk the butter and eggs together. (It may look a little curdled.) Stir in lemon juice, chives and both salmons. Season with salt and pepper.

Spoon the mixture into a terrine or individual ramekins and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Note: About the raw eggs, I usually use much more lemon juice for the acidity and flavor. Still, this shouldn't sit around at room temperature all day.
