Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 10 min.
Nicholas's fish : Photo of step #1
It is not necessary to use fish fillet, ordinary pieces will be fine.

Wash the 300 g fish fillet, remove skin and bones then cut into medium size pieces.

Stage 2 - 20 min.

Wash 3 leeks, and slice thinly.

In a large pan, melt 40 g butter and add the sliced leeks, and well mix but don't add salt.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Add 200 ml cream, salt and pepper, then thicken the cream over a low heat for a few minutes.

It's ready.

Remarks

Adding cream is optional, but Nicholas loves it and it's smoother with it.

You can add other vegetables, but I think that leeks are essential.

Crème brulée
Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
