Salmon Pate #2

1 sl White bread

1 tb Unsalted butter

1/2 c Diced onion

1/2 c Dry white wine

4 Eggs

3 Egg whites

1/2 lb Whitefish

2 1/4 lb Salmon

1 ts Salt

1 ts Ground white pepper

1 ts Ground coriander

1/4 ts Ground nutmeg

1/2 c Whipping cream

PREHEAT OVEN TO 325F. Remove and discard the crust from the bread. Tear the bread into pieces and set aside. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat on the stove, add the onions and cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the wine, bring to a boil and cook 1 minute. Add the bread and cook, stirring 5 minutes. Scrape the mixture into a mixing bowl. Roughly cut the whitefish and salmon into 1-inch pieces and add to the bread in the mixing bowl. Add the salt, pepper, coriander and nutmeg and mix. Place the mixture in a food processor and process until smooth. Or, fit a meat grinder with a medium die and grind the fish mixture twice. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl and place bowl over a pan of ice water. Add the eggs and the whites and mix well. Slowly add the cream. Pack the mixture into a 9-by-5-by-3-inch glass, ceramic or metal loaf pan. Tap the pan on a counter to firmly pack. Cover tightly with a double layer of aluminum foil. Place loaf pan in a larger pan and fill with boiling water until it rises halfway to the top of the loaf pan. Place in the oven for 1 hour. Remove pate from oven and its water bath. Place loaf pan on a baking sheet. Cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. To remove, run a knife around edges of the pate. Dip loaf pan in hot water for a minute. Turn out onto a plate.
