Recipe by Chef John
"This really produces a fantastic piece of salmon, and when paired with a simple potato and leek chowder, would make a terrific Valentine's dinner idea."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

salt to taste
1 1/2 cups

Made this for my wife and she flipped. Requesting this recipe once a month now. Don't make the mistake I did -- found the chowder very bland while cooking, added chicken stock and punched up the seasoning. It didn't need it. Once the salmon is put together with the soup + chili paste... it all comes together. Go AS IS!
Made this for my husband on Valentine's Day, and he loved it! I used Dijon mustard between the layers of salmon as suggested in the video. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as written. The video was very helpful. Thanks for such a great dish!
sorry, but this recipe is to complicated and confusing for me. i didn't finish it. i also was missing the cream in the chowder
Did not have any flavor.
My Valentine and I shared this cooking experience and it was lovely!!!!!!!! Directions and video were perfect and humorous....would try anything by Chef John.
