The glorious richness of this melt-in-your-mouth smoked, then butter-basted and grilled salmon is enhanced by the creamy-acidic notes of a classic beurre blanc. Test kitchen tip: Take the pressure off and make the beurre blanc ahead, and then store it warm in an insulated container until ready to serve.
These eggs get a punch from briny capers, pickled red onions, anchovy, and fresh herbs. When topped with fresh uni and salmon roe, they become otherworldly.
Fresh artichokes braised in a fragrant broth of wine, stock, and olive oil are a traditional Provençal dish called barigoule. Teamed with black bass, it makes for a flavorful and memorable dish.
