Salmon rillettes with tomato salad


Salmon rillettes with tomato salad

1 shallot, minced
2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoon dry white wine
1/4 pound smoked salmon
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces and softened
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated

1 pound grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoon fresh tarragon, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
Freshly ground pepper
Crusty bread, sliced, for serving


Prepare the salmon: Cook the shallot with the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, 2 to 3 minutes. Season the salmon with salt and pepper; add to the skillet. Add the wine, cover and cook over low heat until opaque, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer the salmon to a plate and let the pan juices simmer, 2 minutes. Let cool.

Pulse the smoked salmon and butter in a food processor to make a coarse paste. Flake in the cooked salmon; add the pan juices, lemon juice, nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Pulse until incorporated. Spoon into a bowl, cover and chill at least 1 hour.

Make the salad: Toss the tomatoes, sugar and a pinch of salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the vinegar, mustard and the 1/2 teaspoon salt, then whisk in the olive oil. Whisk in the cream, tarragon and chives. Toss in the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Serve with the salmon rillettes and bread.
