Skewer the tail so that the cutlet is an even shape. Bring the stock (or replacement which is called a court bouillon) to the boil, reduce to a simmer and add the salmon. You may have to do this in two batches if your pan is not large enough. Cook for 1–2 minutes. Keep the salmon warm but don’t cook any more as it should be served rare to medium. Make the sauce by bringing the cream and Sparkling wine to the boil – reduce to a simmer and swirl in the butter. Stir in the lemon juice and chervil slowly. Serve the salmon with steamed/boiled baby potatoes, green beans and with the sauce over the salmon.

This issue’s elegant yet powerful 2016 Alejandro by Alex Russell opens with hints of fresh herb on the nose, while the multi-layered palate has leesy texture and an almost salty finish. Food Prosciutto with seared Coffin Bay scallops, globe artichokes and truffle Food Tetsuya Wakuda’s Sushi at home recipe Words by Tetsuya Wakudu on 1 Sep 2017 Riesling is always lovely with the delicate, savoury nature of sushi and sashimi. We love the Henschke Julius Riesling from South Australia’s Eden Valley , which allures with notes of lime, fresh flowers, jasmine and river stone on the nose. The palate presents a zesty, youthful and energetic line of pure lime and river stone, while a precise vein of acidity drives all the flavours across the entire palate.
