What to drink with a pot roast of salmon?

Some don't know it, others have been asking for it for a long time. We deliver you the recipe of the salmon pot au feu. Simple and excellent. One more weapon to compete with granny's excellent traditional pot au feu. A dish that is extremely easy to make! Here is the recipe for the salmon pot au feu :

For 4 people:

  • 4 salmon steaks
  • 2 leeks, 4 carrots, 6 potatoes,
  • 1 bay leaf, 1 branch of thyme, 3 shallots, 1 tablespoon of fish stock, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 12.5 cl of white wine (it's not now that we are tuning the wine so go on the cooking wine), 12 cl of liquid cream, salt and pepper.

Peel and slice the vegetables. Place them in a large casserole, cover them with water, salt, add the bay leaf and thyme, the fish stock and bring to the boil. Cook for 15 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.

Peel the shallots and sweat them in olive oil. Pour the white wine and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by half. Add two ladles of vegetable stock, bring to the boil and then add the cream. Season with salt and pepper.

Divide the salmon and vegetables among the casseroles, cover with sauce and serve.

So that's the recipe, but...

Which wine with a salmon stew?

Vegetables, salmon, we'll go with a white wine. As salmon is a rather fatty fish, we will leave on a white wine...fatty and round! That is to say not too dry... A chardonnay will be perfect or a grape variety like a chenin. Even a Riesling... for Alsace lovers.

Enjoy the tasting!
