Preparation Time

20 Min.

Cook Time

15 Min.


Sauce Hollandaise

1 pc Shallot
30 ml dry white wine
80 ml Water
1 tbs Vinegar
some Parsley
1/2 tbs tarragon
1 pc Bay leaf
2 pc peppercorns
250 g butter
2 pc egg yolk
some Cayenne pepper
some nutmeg
Salt (I use Himalayan salt!)
Pepper (I'm using white pepper here!)

Salmon and Asparagus

300 g smoked salmon
1 bunch white asparagus (You can also use green asparagus!)
Salt (I use Himalayan salt!)
brown sugar
1 tbs butter (You can also use some of the clarified butter for the sauce!)
1 packet Cress


Sauce Hollandaise prekär

Place a high stainless steel bowl or the appropriate hammer bowl from the mixer in the oven. Place the plates in the oven to serve. Heat the oven at 80-100°C hot air.

Prepare the reduction for the Hollandaise sauce: Peel the shallot, cut into fine cubes and bring to the boil with white wine, water, vinegar, parsley, tarragon, bay leaf and peppercorns. Reduce the reduction to 3-4 tablespoons. Pass the prepared reduction through a sieve and make ready.

Heat the butter for the Hollandaise sauce in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Clarify the butter to a light brown shade, then pass through a fine sieve and let it temper next to the stove (approx. 90°C).

Asparagus and Salmon prepare

Peel the asparagus and cook in salted water with a little sugar until al dente. Remove asparagus and keep warm in the oven covered with a butterflake.

Unpack the smoked salmon and prepare the slices.

Sauce Hollandaise prepare

Remove the preheated stainless steel bowl from the oven. Pour the egg yolks into the bowl, let the mixer run at a high speed with the whisk, slowly add the prepared reduction to the egg yolks.

Add the clarified brown butter slowly by the spoonful, then faster. The egg yolks and butter must emulsify immediately and combine. Season the hollandaise sauce with a little chilli or cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Let the mixer run slowly.


Take the plates out of the oven. Wrap the asparagus stems with the smoked salmon and place on the preheated plates. Pour the Hollandaise sauce on salmon and asparagus and decorate with cress. Serve quickly! Enjoy your meal!

Note: The Hollandaise sauce can be kept warm in the oven at 90°C for about 15 minutes. Put a thin slice of butter on top of the sauce so that no skin appears!
