BB Salmon With Hollandaise Sauce & Mushy Chickpeas

Letting Kimi try some new taste - Hollandaise Sauce, a personal favourite and chickpeas. He finished most of it which is good since he is trying for the first time. He also had watercress soup to go with this. I cut up some watercress for his greens.

You will notice that the sauce above looks a little thick. That's cos I stirred in some cheese when the sauce was ready. Think it will be better without it and would taste better if the cheese was melted on the salmon instead. Hence, I have omitted the adding of the cheese in the recipe below.

The chickpeas were from a can and I used a fork to mash it up. I used an organic boiled chickpeas. You can also buy the raw ones and boil on your own. But this is so much more convenient!

Tips
  • When stirring in the yolk mixtue to the butter, ensure that you keep on stirring with the balloon whisk.
  • Make sure that it is on very low heat to avoid the mixture getting cooked. Hence it is most safe to add the yolk mixture to the butter once it is melted. Make sure that the butter DO NOT boil.
