House-smoked salmon with wasabi panna cotta, apples and beetroot
If you don’t have access to a smoker, store-bought smoked salmon will work to, just marinate in the lemon and fennel.
500g Norwegian salmon
Lemon peel from 1 lemon
30g fennel leaves chopped
Trim and remove any bones and scales from the salmon. Mix the salt, sugar, lemon peel and fennel together and place the salmon skin side up in the mixture, covering the salmon completely. Leave this for two hours, then wash the salt off, rinse and dry, Smoke in smoker for three hours. After smoked refrigerate until cold, then thinly slice to make rosettes.
Wasabi panna cotta
2 Gelatine Leaves, soaked in ice water
Bring cream to 80˚C, whisk in wasabi, gelatine, salt and lime. Set up in fridge, whisk before quenelling.
To eat: layer the strips of salmon on a plate, top with the wasabi panna cotta quenells, julienned apple and cooked beetroot halves that have been cooled.
