Salmon blanquette (a very French stew prepared in a veloute sauce) – with or without a Thermomix

A blanquette is a ragout of meat usual (clearly not in this case), prepared in a veloute sauce. My absolute favourite recipe that my mum makes is blanquette of veal.

However, veal is not very common or popular here in the UK and a bit of fish is good for you. So we’ve tried this salmon version of blanquette and loved it!
