Salmon Rillette with Fines Herbes

Wine Pairing: Far Niente Chardonnay, Napa Valley

Makes 12 crostini

Ingredients

8 ounces wild salmon, diced

1 cup white wine

1 teaspoon each:

ground white pepper, coriander and mustard seed

¼ cup crème fraîche, whipped

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

2 large shallots, diced

1 bunch chives, chopped

1 bunch fresh tarragon, chopped

Method

Place diced salmon in heat-proof glass bowl. Bring the white wine to a simmer for two minutes on the stovetop then add ground dried spices and mix. Pour liquid over the salmon until the fish is covered. Drain the fish after three minutes and reserve the liquid. Fold crème fraîche, one tablespoon of the cooking liquid, Dijon mustard, shallots, chives and tarragon into the fish until fully incorporated. Refrigerate in an air-tight container for at least one hour and up to three days.

Presentation

Garnish chilled rillettes with chopped chives, spread a generous layer atop toasted crostini and serve this as the first course for your Mother’s Day brunch, paired with a chilled glass of Far Niente Chardonnay. The lush layers of bright fruit marry beautifully with the flavors and the creamy texture of the rillettes. Bonus: Elegantly etched with those three meaningful words, I Love You, this limited-edition bottle of Far Niente Chardonnay can double as the centerpiece of your Mother’s Day table.
