Pine Nut Dusted King Salmon with Beurre Blanc, Truffle Scented Pea Tip Puree and Yorkshire Caviar

Bet you didn’t know that Pine Nuts aren’t nuts at all, rather a part of the Legume family. This whimsical dish harnesses the omega 3 fatty richness of king salmon and pairs it with the sweetness of peas, the earthiness of black truffle and the toasted crunch of pine nuts swimming in the buttery perfection of our Gold Label Beurre Blanc creating a uniquely delicious destination offering.
