Fried sauce and an exotic touch
A sauce that’s been simmered for a long time by Jerome Gowan, the head chef and house manager, who also incorporates vegetable trimmings, satay powder, and lemon, for another touch of exoticism and creaminess.

Salmon recipe in fall colors
Ingredients for four people
4 pieces (130g) of fresh salmon (responsibly caught, red label preferred)
For the rusks:
– 100 grams of unsalted peanuts
– 100 grams of sesame
– 15 grams of coarse salt
To prepare the sauce:
– 60 grams of satay powder
30 cl of meat juice
30 cl of liquid cream 30%
– 1 lemon
Make a gravy of 600 grams of beef bouillon, fry it in a very hot pan, brush it with red wine, put it in a saucepan and fill it with water. Add the vegetable trimmings (carrots, onions, herbs) and simmer over low heat for 5 hours. Drain and set aside. (Possible alternative: Beef juice cubes are available at the supermarket.)
To prepare the sauce, boil to reduce the juice of the meat, peel and squeeze the juice from the lemon, add the satay powder and cream, and reduce to obtain a creamy texture.
Gomasio bread crumbs
In a hot skillet without fat, toast the sesame and salt for a few minutes. Crush it in a mortar (or mix it in a blender very briefly).
Roast the peanuts in a skillet without fat, then mix them in the same way as Gomasio. Mix peanuts with gomaseo.
Salmon is rolled in breadcrumbs and cooked in a pan with fat (butter and olive oil). Grill them for a minute on all sides to get delicious, golden brown breadcrumbs.
Put the salmon in the center of the dish, add the sauce.
Add some fresh herbs, toss with the purple cauliflower and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with microgreens.
