Cooking Preparation of the Recipe:

1 x Court Bouillon **

3/4 lb Salmon, fillets or steaks, 1 c Butter, unsalted, softened
-- fresh, trimmed, skin on 1 tb Armagnac
1 tb Salt, sea 3/4 lb Salmon, smoked, trimmed, and
1/2 ts Peppercorns, whole -- cut into shreds
1 sm Chili, dried 4 oz Roe, salmon

--------------------------------TOAST STRIPS--------------------------------
Oil, olive -- trimmed, each slice cut
1 ea Bread, white, loaf, sliced -- into 3 long strips
-- 3/4-inch thick, crusts

** See recipe for Court Bouillon.

Bring the Court Bouillon to a boil in a skillet. Add the salmon
and lower the heat to simmer. Place a sheet of buttered parchment
paper or aluminum foil, buttered side down, over the salmon. Poach
until the fish is just opaque in the center, (about 8 minutes), or
about 10 minutes per inch of thickness; DO NOT OVERCOOK. Remove from
the heat and cool salmon completely in the broth.

To make up a seasoning mixture, use a small spice or coffee mill
to grind the sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon peppercorns and chili.

Drain the poached salmon, remove its skin, and cut it into
1/2-inch pieces. Place the salmon pieces, butter, Armagnac and a
pinch of the seasoning mixture into a processor and blend it all into
a very smooth puree. Add the shredded smoked salmon to the processor
and process with rapid on and off pulses just until the mixture is
blended. There should be visible shreds of smoked salmon. Transfer
the mixture to a mixing bowl.

Gently fold salmon roe into the mixture until blended, taking
care not to crush the eggs. Adjust the seasoning. Spoon mixture into
a 4-cup souffle dish, straight-sided gratin dish, or casserole,
lightly tapping mold on towel lined work surface to eliminate any air
bubbles. Cover the dish with a plastic wrap and chill. (The Court
Bouillon can be prepared 1 or 2 days ahead.)

For Toast Strips:

Preheat oven to 325 F. Rub a baking sheet with a thin film of
olive oil. Arrange the bread strips on the baking sheet and bake them
on the center rack of the oven, without turning, until lightly golden
(15 to 20 minutes.)

Remove the rillettes from the refrigerator 20 minutes before
serving. Dip the serving spoon in cold water and scoop onto cool
plates. Serve with warm toast strips.
