With a name like Salmon Chocolat you know you are in for a treat. Three main steps allow key ingredients, like white chocolate and orange liqueur, to infuse into the side and sauce for a truly one-of-a-kind taste. Apart from most cooking techniques, this salmon is set to simmer in seasoned water so no moisture is lost and only essential flavors are added.
