Marinade for the Salmon:
Gut the fish and remove the skin (put it aside) and bones being careful not to spoil the flesh.
Cut it into pieces of about 80g and put them in the sparkling water for 2 minutes, dry them and cover them with salt and sugar and put them in a vacuum for 30 min.
Then wash the pieces under running water and leave them to dry on a clean cloth.
Smoke them twice using whisky barrel sawdust.

For the Lovage Sauce:
Spin the two types of celery leaves, add the rest of the ingredients and blend.

For the Trentodoc Sauce
Reduce the cream by half, and the Trentodoc with the shallot, pepper and laurel by almost 4/5.
Strain and season with salt and pepper.
