I wish the photo above was mine, but it isn’t. It’s from Haute Cuisine, the movie that inspired me to try and wing this dish. Mine didn’t turn out as pretty as this movie shot, but it did taste wonderful. I’ll have to keep experimenting with this one.
Here’s my first try.
Find a beautiful cabbage and make cuts at the base to remove the outer leaves. Remove several layers, depending on how thick your final cabbage will be. I only used 4 layers of leaves.
Lightly boil the leaves in 1/2 water, 1/2 chicken stock.
Since I’m winging it, I added an additional layer of asiago mashed potatoes I had in the fridge. Then a second layer of the same (salmon, salt/pepper, potatoes) followed by a third and, finally, the last. In the center, I also added a shallot and some dill.
Remove, set aside to cool and drain.
I’m not sure what kind of sauce is in the movie shot (hollandaise?), but I think next time I would serve with a sauce. Until then, Choux Farci au Saumon sans sauce. Enjoy!
