Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 green onions minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • 1 pkg smoked salmon chopped
  • 8 egg whites

Method

Grease 8- x 3-3/4-inch (2 .5 L) souffle dish with 1 tsp (5 mL) of the butter; sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese. Set aside.

In large saucepan, melt remaining butter over medium heat; fry onion, thyme and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of the salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in flour; cook, stirring, until golden, about 1 minute. Whisk in milk, 1/2 cup (125 mL) at a time; cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Whisk in egg yolks, green onions, lemon rind, cayenne, paprika and salmon. Transfer to large bowl; let cool for 10 minutes.

In separate large bowl, beat egg whites with remaining salt until stiff peaks form. Fold one-third into salmon mixture; fold in remaining whites. Scrape into prepared soufflé dish. Place on rimmed baking sheet. Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven until puffed and golden, about 50 minutes. Serve immediately.
