Additional kitchen equipment

kitchen brush 


Put the skinless fillets (ask your fishmonger to remove the skin) on a cutting board and slice them into thin, long strips. Drizzle some olive oil on the plates, smear it with a brush in a long line across the plate and season with salt and pepper. Put the thin slices of fish on top of the olive oil. 


Heat some olive oil in a frying pan, add the pumpkin seeds and leave them to brown. Sprinkle over some fleur de sel and drain on a bit of kitchen paper. Once drained, put them on top of the thinly sliced fish fillets and grate over some Ruby chocolate as well. 


Trim the green beans and cook them in salted boiling water. Strain and rinse under cold running water. Leave the beans to drain on a sieve. Finely slice the red onion and put aside. 


To make the vinaigrette finely chop the shallots. Combine raspberry vinegar, olive oil, peanut oil and water. Grate in the Ruby chocolate and add the chopped shallots. Season to taste with salt and pepper and mix briefly into a nice flavourful vinaigrette. Spoon the vinaigrette over the thinly sliced fish. 


Dress the beans with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the thinly sliced red onions to the green beans. Serve the bean salad and vinaigrette separately with the gilt-head bream. Garnish the plate with some red mustard cress.
