Chef's Note

Hans Haas, Tantris

Ingredients for 4 servings
Garlic mashed potatoes
- 350 g (12 oz.) floury Potatoes
- 100 g (3 1/2 oz.) hot milk
- 20 g (4 tsp.) butter
- 2-3 tbsp. garlic purée
- 1-2 tbsp. whipped cream
- Grated nutmeg
- Salt
- 4 slices of wild Salmon, about 60 g (2 oz.) each
- 150 g (5 oz.) butter
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Salt
- 4 tsp. caviar (optional)
  1. Quarter the potatoes and cook in boiling salted water. Remove them and put them immediately through a potato ricer. 
  2. Add the butter; season with salt and nutmeg and blend in the hot milk. 
  3. At the end, add the garlic purée and cream, then correct the seasoning; the potatoes should be creamy.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, remove any bones from the salmon; salt it lightly on all sides. 
  5. Butter an ovenproof dish. Place the slices of salmon in it side by side and coat with a little butter. Cover the dish tightly and cook the fish on the lowest rack of an oven preheated to 80 °C (150° F) for 10 to 12 minutes depending on the thickness of the slices. 
  6. Remove from the oven and let the salmon cool for a few minutes. 
  7. Reheat the remaining butter in a skillet until it begins to brown. Season with salt and lemon juice and froth lightly with a whisk. 


  1. Place the salmon fillets on plates with the garlic mashed potatoes. 
  2. Pour the brown butter over top and garnish the mashed potatoes with a spoonful of caviar per serving.
