Salmon Sherry

by Paresa Dining



  • 160g salmon fillet skin on
  • 30ml Tio Pepe sherry wine
  • 150g fresh spinach leaves
  • 30ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 80ml whipping cream 
  • 10 saffron stems
  • ½ peeled clove of garlic
  • 30g Italian parsley leaves
  • 40ml sunflower oil
  • 80ml whole milk
  • 8 bread croutons
  • salt & white pepper

Seal the salmon, the sherry and a pinch of salt in a vacuum bag and cook it for 20 minutes at 50˚C in an immersion cooking bath.

Make a garlic and parsley lactonese with a hand blender, introducing first the sunflower oil, half the milk, the garlic and the parsley. Once everything is blended, then slowly start adding the rest of the sunflower oil and salt to taste.

For the creamy saffron sauce, toast the saffron in a pan with a splash of extra virgin olive oil and add the whipping cream; let cook slowly for 5 minutes until it’s reduced to creamy sauce texture and add a pinch of salt.
Pan fry the spinach with the remaining extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt and white pepper.

Place the spinach at the centre of the plate surrounded by the saffron sauce and the green alioli spots and top it with the bread croutons.
Strain the salmon from the vacuum bag, dry it with an absorbent paper and torch it with a gas blowtorch on the flesh meat side, then turn it and set it up at on top of the spinach and remove the skin and torch the back.
