Prepare the vegetables:

  • Chop the turnip into small cubes, discarding the skin
  • Peel the parsnips and carrots
  • Cut up the parsnips and carrots using either a normal or oblique cut


Create the parsnip puree:

  • Simmer for 20 minutes
  • Remove from heat
  • Remove the rosemary
  • Puree using a hand blender
  • Add 1 tablespoon of sour cream
  • Blend sour cream and parsnips


Cook the turnip and carrots:

  • Melt 2 tbsp of unsalted butter in a pan
  • Add carrots and turnips
  • Heat the carrots and turnips in the butter for about 5 minutes over a medium-low heat (also known as sweating)
  • Add 1 cup of water
  • Add 1 tablespoon of honey
  • Cook until most of the moisture has evaporated

Pan sear the Salmon:

  • Place pan over a high heat
