Here he shares recipes, answers cooking questions and helps with cooking.

My recipe for salmon cream sauce is presented in this post. This is a wonderfully simple fish dish and you can adapt the side dishes according to the season.

The simple preparation of salmon cubes in a wonderfully creamy sauce is now coming step by step to your kitchen. As a premiere, I have included a special sesame spice today, more on that later.

A cooking video accompanies you while you cook in your kitchen. I wish you good luck and bon appétit!

1. Shopping List for Salmon Cream Sauce

Here is the handy list for your visit to the supermarket. For selected ingredients, I recommend ordering online.

Green asparagus —> I buy fresh at the supermarket
Basmati rice —-> Get it at the usual place or Premium *** in the rice cooking box
Dry white wine —-> I get it from the wine merchant
Vegetable stock —–> Supermarket
Butter —–> Supermarket
Cream —–> Supermarket
Soup vegetables —–> Supermarket
Salmon —–> Supermarket with the 5 letters fresh or order salmon fillet online
Sesame —-> The spice used is available exclusively as Sesame Cooking Box

Basic ingredients such as some oil for frying, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper are probably in your kitchen cupboard. Nevertheless, take another look and don’t forget anything!

I have to leave you a few lines about the special sesame seeds 🙂 Of course you can get plain sesame seeds. I would rather recommend my new sesame spice set.

The sesame seeds with wasabi, ume plums, kimchi and yuzu are universal spice helpers. The superfood sesame seeds not only go well with fish and this dish, but with any vegetable, salad, Asian dish or fusion cuisine. I can’t keep my fingers off them right now. The seeds taste great to me and the seasoning offers a wonderful subtle change.


Sesame Furikake, please note, comes from Japan and tastes delicious. The flavoured sesame seeds even go well with mashed potatoes.

Arrange dish

Prepare the hot plates.

Arrange the rice and asparagus, add the salmon pieces and mix the sauce with the remaining cold butter.

Pour the sauce onto the plate. Decorate with sesame seeds and coriander/Thai basil and serve.


I also like to refine the cream sauce with a little white truffle oil. This gives the dish a fine, light truffle flavour and elevates it to the category of star cuisine.
