Chef Hyejin can Cook: Salmon with Grapefruit Butter Sauce

For a catering gig that our company did (yes, we do private dinner catering...interested^^). We had to come up with a special menu for some VIP guests. We started with a Gruyere tart with caramelized onions and followed that with a creamy tomato soup. For the entree we went with grilled salmon with a grapefruit butter sauce. We got fresh Alaskan salmon from the fish market and seared it and served it atop of wilted spinach and buttery mashed potatoes. The sauce was a grapefruit sauce reduction with whisked butter.

The dish tested well in our test kitchen and when we went to the dinner, every plate was clean.

Our next course was a salad with a red wine vinegarette, roasted walnuts, and gorgonzola cheese. I know a bit strange to have a salad before the dessert, but it totally worked.

For dessert we had cheesecake with a blueberry sauce followed by coffee. All-in-all, a very good meal and I think the 12 guests at the party enjoyed it.

Come take a cooking class or take a Culinary Tour in Seoul!
