(Inspired by Delia’s Salmon in Champagne Sauce)

Serves 2


Salmon in Champagnes Sauce

  • 2 middle-cut skinless fillets salmon (175-200g / 6-7 ounces each)
  • 85ml / 2.8 fluid ounces champagne
  • 10g / 0.35 ounces butter, plus a little extra for greasing
  • 1 medium shallot, finely chopped
  • 10g / 0.35 ounces plain flour
  • 100ml / 3.38 fluid ounces double cream
  • 2 teaspoons Keta salmon caviar to garish
  • a few sprigs of fresh dill, to garnish
  • salt and freshly milled black pepper

Boiled potatoes with butter

  • 2 medium potatoes, diced

Blanched French beans with Asian lemon dressing

  • 2 cups French beans

  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of honey


  1. Smear a little butter over the base of the frying pan, then arrange the fillets in it.

  3. Spoon the Champagne over the top of the fillets before putting the lid on.
  4. Gently poach the salmon for about 8-10 minutes. The tip of a knife inserted into the thickest part will show if it is cooked when you just ease the flesh back.
  5. While the salmon is poaching, melt the butter in a medium saucepan and cook the shallots in it over a gentle heat for 5-6 minutes, until softened and golden but not browned.
  6. When the salmon is cooked, carefully lift the fillets on to a warmed dish, cover them with foil and keep warm.
  7. Add the flour to the buttery shallot juices, stir it in and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Now gradually add the salmon poaching liquid to the pan, a little at a time, then blend in the double cream, whisking until the sauce is smooth.
  8. Let it come to a simmer and cook for 1-2 minutes, then taste and add some seasoning.
  9. Add potatoes in cold water and seasoned it generously with salt. Bring it to a boil and lower the heat to simmer the potatoes for about 5-8 minutes until they are tender.
  10. Drained the potatoes and coat it with butter. Seasoned it with salt and pepper. Place into serving bowl.
  11. Whisk together light soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon juice and honey in a bowl, set aside.
  12. Bring a pot of salted water to boil, add French beans and cook till tender, for 3-4 minutes. Remove it from heat and submerge in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes.
  13. Toss French beans into lemon dressing. Place it in a serving bowl
  14. Serve the salmon fillets on warmed plates with a little of the sauce spooned over and a teaspoon of Keta Salmon Caviar and a sprig of dill on top, and hand the rest of the sauce round in a warmed jug. Serve it with the potatoes and French beans.
