    Grill the salmon portions.

    Lay out 2 chard leaves on the worktop, quite flat and overlapping a little. Place a piece of salmon on top, straight from the pan (be careful, it's hot).

    Trim off the ends of the roll neatly to show the lovely contrast between the pink of the salmon and the green of the chard.

    Put 1 tablespoon butter in a pan over medium heat, salt and pepper, then arrange the salmon rolls in the bottom together with any offcuts.

    Leave on low heat just long enough to warm the leaves through for a couple of minutes on each side, as the salmon is already cooked.

    Heat the plates. Place a salmon roll in the centre with the trimmings on the side, and pour a ribbon of sabayon over.

    Serve immediately.

Remarks:

You can try using spinach instead of chard, which tastes just as good, but the rolls are trickier to make as the spinach leaves are very fragile and much smaller.

And to drink?

A fruity white wine, such as a Sauvignon from the Loire. Allow yourself to be tempted by a Pouilly-fumé...
