Gribiche is a classic French sauce made with pantry items including capers, cornichons and Dijon mustard, plus fresh parsley and hard-boiled eggs. It's often served with cold meats or vegetables, but here we pair it with roasted fish and asparagus for a bright and acidic burst of flavor.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

  • Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Carefully add eggs, cover and steam for 10 minutes. Immediately transfer to a large bowl of ice water.

  • Meanwhile, place salmon on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with 2 teaspoons oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Toss asparagus with 1 teaspoon oil on another rimmed baking sheet. Roast the salmon on the upper rack until cooked through and the center is opaque, 8 to 12 minutes, depending on thickness. Roast the asparagus on the lower rack until bright green and tender-crisp, about 8 minutes.

  • Peel the eggs and place in a medium bowl. Coarsely mash with a potato masher or fork. Stir in vinegar, parsley, capers, cornichons and mustard along with the remaining 5 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Serve the salmon and asparagus with the sauce.
