Salmon with White Butter Sauce Recipe

Salmon with White Butter Sauce Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

225 g/8 oz cooked salmon, flaked

2 eggs, beaten
25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp butter or margarine, melted
15 g/0.5 oz/0.25 cup fresh breadcrumbs

1 shallot, finely chopped
30 ml/2 tbsp white wine vinegar
100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup butter or margarine, diced

Method :

Mix the fish with the eggs, butter or margarine and breadcrumbs and turn into a greased fish mould or shallow pudding basin. Cover with greased greaseproof (waxed) paper and tie with string. Transfer to a large saucepan and pour in boiling water to come half-way up the sides of the container. Cover and steam gently for about 1 hour until the mixture is quite firm.


Meanwhile, mix the shallot and vinegar and simmer gently until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add the butter or margarine, a piece at a time, stirring continuously, until the sauce thickens. Carefully turn out the salmon mould on to a warm serving plate, pour the sauce over and serve immediately.
