Le Bernadin-inspired Salmon and Apples

p1000472-757289I went to the store to get the ingredients for this great salmon recipe in my On the Line, Inside the World of Le Bernardin cookbook and, oddly, my fish monger had no salmon! So this went from a Le Bernadin recipe to a Le Bernadin-inspired recipe. This was night two of my exploration of the new cookbook (this is night one).

It is alternating layers of trout, apples, and smoked salmon. It’s topped with a salad of julienned apples, celery, celery leaf, parsley, and lemon zest tossed with lemon juice and olive oil. The whole thing is drizzled with a serrano pepper emulsion.

I’d like to try it again with the proper ingredients, but this was amazingly good.
