Making gourmet meals at home can be a challenge. There are so many things involved. First, you need a recipe, then you need the freshest ingredients, and then there’s the little issues of actually knowing how to make it. That’s where Chef’s Plate comes in. Our recipes are created with the home kitchen and home cook in mind, but always focused on gourmet flavours and techniques.
Because our mission is the get Canadian’s back in the kitchen, we are excited to share recipes like this one where you’ll learn to execute a chef’s trick that takes your dish to the next level. This recipe uses rainbow char to wrap the salmon, sealing in the creamy butter and tangy citrus while cooking.
Another challenge, side dishes that aren’t boring. Adding the rosemary to the potatoes elevates them from plain to epicurean. Par boiling the potatoes and finishing them in a fry pan creates a gourmet luxury you miss out on by simply boiling or roasting them. This technique creates a contrast in textures that feels decadent.
