- 25g hazelnuts (with skin)
- 1 can of white beans (400g)
- 400g Hokkaido pumpkin
- 1 small onion
- 3 sage leaves (more if desired)
- 50g medium-aged Pecorino cheese
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 50ml dry white wine
- 250ml chicken broth
- 400g salmon fillet (without skin and bones)
To create the Lachsfilet auf Bohnen-Kürbis-Gemüse, start by roasting the hazelnuts in a pan until lightly browned. Remove the skins by rubbing them between your hands. Chop the hazelnuts and set them aside.
In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until translucent. Then, add the white beans, diced Hokkaido pumpkin, and sage leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Add the white wine and allow it to simmer until reduced. Next, pour in the chicken broth and simmer for another 15 minutes, or until the pumpkin is tender.
While the vegetables are cooking, season the salmon fillet with salt and pepper. In a separate pan, heat some olive oil and sear the salmon on both sides until golden brown.
Once the vegetables are cooked, remove the sage leaves and mash them slightly with a potato masher to create a chunky consistency. Stir in the chopped hazelnuts and grated Pecorino cheese for added texture and flavor.
