ballotine of salmon and fromage blanc with herbs
marco pierre white

For the fromage blanc.
250g fromage blanc
3 shallots very finely chopped
1 clove garlic very finely chopped
handful of chives finely snipped
handful of parsley finely chopped
250ml double cream

You will also need
3.6kg salmon filleted and skinned
salt and freshly ground pepper
cayenne pepper
5 tbsp each of chervilchives tarragon dill and flat leaf parsley chopped
2 leaves gelatine
1 tsp peppercorns
a handful of parsley stalks
salmon eggs to serve
chervil sprigs to garnish

Place the fromage in muslin.
Tie securely and allow to drain for a least 12 hours.
Place in a small bowl and add the shallots garlic and herbs.
Gently fold in the double cream.
Leave in a cool place for at least a couple of hours for the flavours to develop.
Season the salmon fillets on both sides with the salt pepper and cayenne and leave for 15 minutes. Dry with kitchen paper to remove any liquid.
Lay out on a large piece of cling film bigger than the salmon.
Place half the chopped herbs in the middle of the cling film in roughly the same shape as the fish. Lay one of the fillets skin side down.
Press down gently so the herbs stick to the skin.
Put the gelatine leares along the length of this piece of salmon then lay the second piece of salmon over the gelatine skin side
Cover the top with the remaining herbs.
Roll tightly in the cling film to get a sausage shape.
Tie knot in both ends trying to exclude as much air as possible wrap with another piece of cling film then tie the fish with string at three equal intervals to retain its shape.
Roll in a wet tea towel and tie in the same way.
Weigh the fish.
To cook half fill a fish kettle with water enough to cover the fish parcel
Season generously with salt a few peppercorns and parsley stalks.
Bring to the boil then allow to cool to 65C 149F.
Poach the fish for three minutes per 450g.
Leave the fish to cool in the liquor for one hour then remove and refrigerate overnight
Remove the cloth and the cling film.
Cut very carefully into 1012 slices.
Serve with a small mound of salmon eggs and some fromage blanc moulded into an oval shape using two spoons; garnish with chervil.
Recommended wine: try a chardonnay from California Carneros region.

This should be made the night before. It is simple and fresh and so much more delicious than boring poached salmon.
