Wine Tip

Chablis is a beautiful wine with ripe fruits on the nose and a creamy, full mouthfeel that’s replete with tropical notes. It caters to both the salmon and crème fraiche in this dish perfectly.

Step 1

Salmon and broccoli casserole

Cut broccoli into bite-sized florets. Then, fill a large saucepan half full with salted water, bring to a boil, and blanch broccoli for approx. 2 – 3 min. Drain and set aside.
