30g sea purslane

To Finish
12 Nasturtium leaves
12 sea purslane
12 borage shoots
12 land of sea shoots
12 Pennywort
Lemon zest and juice

Method

  1. For the Brine: Blend ingredients together and mix with the water. Place the fish portions in the brine for 7 minutes. Then remove, pat dry, wrap in cling film to shape, vacuum pack them and cook for 14 minutes in a 54°c water bath.
  2. For the Bass Braising Liquor: Sweat the shallots and mushrooms in the butter until tender; do not colour. Add garlic, thyme and bay along with the Noilly Pratt, reduce by half, add the stock, bring to the boil, reduce by half again then pass through a fine chinois and emulsify.
  3. To make the pasta, place the flour and salt into a food processor. Turn on the machine and gradually add the eggs and olive oil until a fine crumb is achieved. Then turn the dough out on to the work surface and knead for 5 minutes. Tightly wrap the dough in cling film and rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
  4. Once rested, roll and work the pasta using a pasta machine to a finished thickness of 2mm. Cut into 2cm x 2cm squares. Take each square and roll around a 2mm dowel from one point to the other and secure with a little water. Remove the dowel and place on a pasta drying rack. To cook the pasta, cook in seasoned boiling water for 3 minutes until tender. Refresh and store till later.

Once open, strain off the liquid and reserve. Remove the shellfish from the shells and clean and trim them. The razor clams need to be cut on the diagonal (usually 5 slices per clam). Set aside in the fridge.
  6. For the Shellfish Broth: Wash and finely slice the veg. Place all the ingredients into a pot and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down and simmer until ⅓ reduced. To finish the broth use the shellfish cooking juices. Season to taste.
  7. For the Coco Beans: Place all the ingredients in a cocotte and bring to a simmer. Season and cook gently until the beans are tender. Once ready, cool the beans in the liquor and store in the fridge for later.
  8. For the Lovage Oil: Wash and pick the lovage. Place all the ingredients into a Thermo Mix and blend on full speed for 3 minutes at 70°c. Season and cool down over ice bath. Once cool hang in muslin cloth for 12 hours in the fridge.
  9. For the Sea Vegetables: Wash, trim and pick the sea leaves. Blanch in boiling water for 30 seconds and refresh.
  10. To serve: Place the sea bass portions into the braising liquor for 3-4 minutes. Mix together the coco beans, shellfish, sea vegetables and Garganelli to make the Minestrone. Lightly warm through. Season and finish with a little lemon juice and fresh zest. Arrange the Minestrone in the centre of a bowl. Place the sea bass on top with the herbs and shoots.

Ingredients

1 Chicken breast (skin on)
1 Egg
150ml Double cream
Salt
Pepper
100g Button mushrooms
20g Tarragon
300g Potatoes
4 Cloves of garlic
25g Butter
Splash of milk
250g Carrots
200g Frozen peas
Olive oil
1x Oxo Chicken Stock Pot
100ml White wine
Thick and Easy

Method

  1. To make the chicken mousseline, first put the chicken in the freezer for 30 minutes to ensure it is cold enough to work with. Then, remove the skin and set aside for later. Dice the chicken breast into small chunks and blend in a food processor until completely smooth.
  2. Whilst the food processor is still blending, add the egg to the chicken and continue blending until the egg is fully incorporated. Next, pass the blended chicken mixture through a very fine sieve.
  3. Place the bowl with the chicken over a bowl full of ice, and gradually mix in the double cream. Season with salt and pepper. Once done, place the chicken mixture in the fridge to cool down ready for shaping.
  4. In the meantime make the duxelle by blending the mushrooms in the food processor until they are finely chopped and put into a dry sauce pan over a medium heat to remove any excess moisture. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Finely chop some tarragon and add it to the duxelle and cook for another 2 minutes. Once cooked, set aside to cool.
  6. To assemble the chicken and mushroom Ballantine, spread the chicken mousse onto a piece of cling film in the shape of a rectangle, and lay some of the duxelle mixture horizontally along the middle. Carefully lift the cling film from the bottom and fold the chicken mousse into a sausage shape, then roll the cling film up tightly. Set aside in the fridge until ready to cook.
  7. Peel and chop the potatoes and bring them to the boil in a pan of salted water. Once cooked, drain and leave to steam for a couple of minutes. Mash the potatoes until smooth adding a knob of butter and a splash of milk. Set aside until later.
  8. Slice the carrots length ways (skin on) and place cut side down onto an oiled baking tray and season with salt and pepper. Scatter the garlic cloves into the same baking tray and then roast at 180°C for 40 minutes or until the carrots are soft. Once cooked, transfer the roasted carrots to the food processor and blend until very smooth. Pass the carrot puree through a fine sieve and put into a squeezy bottle.
  9. Remove the roasted garlic cloves from their skins and mash with a fork. Add the mashed garlic to the mashed potato and mix thoroughly.
  10. Put the chicken skin on a baking tray lined with parchment and season with salt and pepper, place another sheet of parchment and another tray on top of the skin to weigh it down and place in the oven for 30 minutes or until the skin is completely crispy. Once cooked, pat the skin dry with kitchen roll, and blend in the processor into a fine powder. Pour the chicken powder evenly onto a plate and set aside for later.
  11. For the pea purée, simply steam the frozen peas for 2 minutes, then blend with a hand blender and pass through a fine sieve. Season with salt and pepper and put into a squeezy bottle ready for later.
  12. For the sauce, add the wine to a sauce pan and reduce by half. Then add the Oxo chicken stock and the cream and reduce again by half. Once reduced, add the tarragon and remove from the heat. Leave to infuse for a few minutes then strain the sauce through a sieve. To thicken the sauce, add Thick and Easy and stir until the desired consistency is reached.
  13. Remove the chicken mousse from the fridge and steam gently for approximately 30 minutes at 80°C. Meanwhile, warm up the rest of the dish components ready to serve. Once the mousse is cooked, remove from the steamer and leave to rest for a couple of minutes. Remove the cling film from the mousse and roll it in the chicken skin powder.
  14. Pipe the garlic mash onto the plate, then slice the chicken mousse into three pieces. Place the mousse on top of the mash and add the purées to the plate. Finally, spoon over some of the tarragon sauce and serve.

Ingredients

4 Greek farmed Sea Bream fillets (or any white fish fillets can be used)
100g fresh or frozen peas
100g Maris Piper potatoes
8 fine asparagus (thin ones), trimmed
600ml fish stock
50ml Pernod
85ml double cream
A little cornflour
1 jar Salmon eggs
Juice of one lemon
1 bunch fresh dill
Micro red vein sorrel
Greek olive oil
4 tbs vegetable oil
100g flour
Salt and pepper

Method

  1. Cut the potatoes into 1cm cubes and boil in salted water. Remove when they are cooked through but not falling apart. Set aside.
  2. Start the sauce by bringing the fish stock, Pernod and double cream to the boil in a wide saucepan. Reduce until the sauce is almost half the amount you started with. Let it thicken then add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the peas and the asparagus and transfer to an ice bath.
  4. ow it’s time for the fish. The secret here is to make sure the fish is dry. Pat it with some kitchen paper towels then mix the flour with a generous amount of pepper and salt on a wide plate. Coat the fillets on both sides with the flour mixture and shake off any excess flour.
  5. Heat some vegetable oil in a hot non-stick pan. Once it’s hot but not smoking add the fillets. Place them skin side down and once they touch the pan you need to press them gently down for around 30 seconds so they don’t curl up.
  6. Now it’s time to put the dish together. Add the potatoes and peas into the sauce and heat through. Do not boil! Chop the dill and stir it gently into the sauce as you take it off the heat.
  7. Using a ladle, spoon a ladle full of sauce with the potatoes and peas in the centre of a wide bowl. Add two asparagus forming an ‘x’ on top of the sauce. Then add the fish fillet on top. Sprinkle the big orange salmon eggs around the fish, dress with some red vein sorrel and gently drizzle
