READY IN: 40mins




  • Stir dill into creme fraiche. Cut mozzarella into small pieces and add to creme fraiche and dill. Add the zest from one of the lemons. Pour wine into broiler pan until it's 1/8th inch deep. Spray broiler rack with cooking spray. Place salmon, skin side down on broiler rack. Broil for 10 minutes about 7 inches from heat source.
  • Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise, green onions, mustard, garlic, and liquid smoke together in small bowl. After the salmon has cooked for 10 minutes, spread mayonnaise mixture evenly over top of salmon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil until mayonnaise mixture is golden brown and salmon is cooked through, about 6 minutes. If it starts browning too fast, lay foil on top. Time is approximate depending on thickness of fish. Do not overcook. Remove fish to warm plate and keep warm. Pour wine from broiling pan into skillet. Cook on high heat until reduced in half. Take off heat. Whisk creme fraiche mixture into reduced wine. Add any fish juices on plate to mixture and whisk inches Stir constantly until well mixed over low heat. Remove 1/2 cup of sauce and reserve. Toss cooked tortellini in rest of sauce and place on 4 warmed plates. Remove skin from salmon, cut into 4 pieces and place on top of tortellini. Drizzle with reserved sauce. Garnish with parsley and lemon slices.
