In a bowl, mix the rest of the <strong>flour with two pinches of salt</strong> and incorporate the <strong>cold butter cubes</strong> with your fingers. Gently rub the <strong>flour and butter</strong> between your hands until well mixed. Reserve 2 tbsp. of <strong>liquid egg</strong> for later. In a different bowl, mix 120 <sup>2P</sup> | 180 <sup>3P</sup>ml of <strong>egg</strong> with 50 <sup>2P</sup> | 75 <sup>3P</sup>ml of water. Create a nest in the <strong>flour mixture</strong> to incorporate the <strong>liquids</strong>. Gradually add the <strong>egg mixture</strong> to the <strong>flour mixture</strong> to form a non-homogeneous ball of dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and set aside in the fridge.
2. Brine the salmon, set up and cook the Swiss chard In a bowl, mix the <strong>brown sugar</strong> with an equal amount of salt. Place a thin layer of <strong>brine</strong> on a plate.

4. Make the sauce In a saucepan, add the remaining <strong>shallots</strong> and <strong>white wine</strong>. Heat up and reduce until you’re left with about 50 ml of liquid. Whisk in the <strong>cream</strong> and reduce by half. Add the remaining <strong>butter</strong> while constantly whisking to get a smooth texture. Add the remaining <strong>parsley</strong> and mix well.
