  • 500 g Wild salmon
  • 1 Onion
  • 5 tbsp Breadcrumbs
  • 50 g Butter
  • 1 pinch Red chilli flakes
  • 0,5 tsp Mustard powder
  • 1 Knife point Smoked peppers
  • Sugar
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 tsp Tomato paste
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper from the grinder

Sweet potato fries

  • 2 Sweet potatoes
  • Smoked salt

Salmon fillet under the hood

  • Rub the lemon peel and squeeze the juice of half a lemon - mix everything together with butter, tomato paste and breadcrumbs and season with paprika, salt, pepper, mustard powder, chilli flakes and sugar.
  • Peel the onion, dice it and stir into the mixture.
  • Pepper the fish lightly and place on baking paper - spread the crust. Apply a little more crust to the thinner areas.
  • Then brown under the grill at 190 ° C for 10-15 minutes until crispy.
  • In my case, the crust is a bit dark in places in the pictures, but not yet burnt - the exposure only intensifies the effect.

Sweet potato fries

  • Peel the potatoes, cut into sticks and sear briefly in boiling salted water, drain and fry in hot oil until crispy - drain on kitchen crepe and sprinkle with smoked salt.

Herb cream sauce

  • Heat the cream slightly in a pan and stir in the cream cheese. Simmer briefly and refine with herbs - season with salt, pepper, a squeeze of lemon and nutmeg.
