Place the celeriac in a sieve, let it drain and cool down. Squeeze the celery-pieces carefully with a kitchen towel. Just before serving cook the cream with the crème fraiche and add the celery-pieces. Puree all the ingredients at least 5 minutes in a food processor. Season with salt, sugar and lemon juice.
  3. For the fish, peel the limes completely and cut them into fine slices.(alternatively take out the filets, squeeze the limes and cover the filets with the lime juice). Pick the parsely leafs from the stalks and chop them coarsely. Rinse the salmon filets with cold water and sear them in a big pan with oil at a high temperature on both sides. Afterwards season them with salt and pepper while they are still in the pan.
  4. Let the butter brown in the pan and then add the lime slices as well as capers. Put the fish back in the pan with the butter sauce and let it steep on the switched off stove. Serve together with the celery-puree and the parsely.
