Hotel Recipe: Carpaccio of Smoked Salmon with Chantilly of Asparagus

I was invited – along with several other journalists, travel writers, and food critics – to lunch in the Italian restaurant at the Regal Hong Kong Hotel, Causeway Bay, on Hong Kong Island.

A guest chef had been brought in from Italy – too bad I didn't get his name card – and he prepared a mouth watering lunch for us.

Everything that we were served was yummy, but – if truth be told – I can't remember most of the dishes that I ate that day. One course, however, stood out – the Carpaccio of Smoked Salmon with Chantilly of Asparagus. I can't stop thinking about it.

I liked that soup so much, in fact, that I asked the hotel for the recipe, and the hotel's public relations department obliged, sending me the ingredients, which I am going to share with you now. The recipe did not include directions on how to prepare the soup, so I'm having to wing it in terms of method.

I think that what I liked most was the presentation. A shallow soup bowl was lined with smoked salmon! Edible flowers were also scattered atop the soup – a nice touch, but I'm sure that the soup would be equally delicious without them.
