For Salmon:
Pinch Spanish paprika
1 egg
120ml double cream
155g salmon scraps
Vegetable oil, for frying
For Salmon Mousse:
Salmon Mousse, recipe follows
Pinch fresh thyme leaves
Pinch cayenne pepper
30g sultanas, soaked in Port
40g mixed nuts
115g chopped red cabbage
2 (170g) salmon fillets
45g butter, divided, plus more for brushing fish
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Pinch black pepper
Preheat oven to 260 degrees C.

Heat oil and 15g butter over high heat in a sauté pan large enough to hold both fillets. Place salmon in the pan and sear for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer pan to oven and roast until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and brush with butter.

 

Meanwhile, melt 30g butter over low heat. Add cabbage and sauté over low heat for about 5 to 7 minutes. Add nuts, sultanas, and seasonings and toss to combine. Place salmon fillets on a bed of the sautéed cabbage mixture and top with Salmon Mousse.
