INGREDIENTS:

  • 400g Mussels
  • 400g Clams
  • 500g Potatoes
  • 200ml Milk
  • 50g Butter
  • 50ml Cream
  • 50g Parmesan Cheese
  • 50ml White Wine
  • 25g Butter
  • 25g Flour
  • 200ml Fish Stock
  • 4 Prawns
  • 4 Scallops
  • 100g Leek
  • 100g Broccoli
  • 100g Asparagus, stencil
  • 100ml Cream
  • 1g Lecithin

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mussels and clams should be the best available quality – ideally to be bought from the fish market. If this quality is not available – consider buying the mussels a day in advance, wash them and keep them in cold salt water over night – the mussels will clean themselves with the clean cold water.
  2. Peel the potatoes – set on a stove and cook till soft (about 30mins – depending on the size of the potatoes).
  3. Discharge the water – mash the potatoes. Reheat the milk with the butter and incorporate into the potatoes. Add in the cream and half of the Parmesan Cheese.
  4. Set a bigger pot onto the stove, reheat to 180C – add olive oil, mussels & clams. Add white wine and cover.
  5. Cook the clams and mussels till it’s open. Switch off the stove. Discharge the liquid. Pick the mussels and clams. Discharge the shells – leaving intact 4 pieces each.
  6. Produce a Roux fish sauce. Use a pot and melt the butter, add the flour – stir constantly – add the white wine and fish stock – boil for about 10 minutes. Set aside. Peel the prawns and cut in half, slice the scallops into quarters. Use the warm Roux (fish sauce) – add the seafood and the vegetables.
  7. Use a fire proof dish – add first the fish and vegetables and top with the sauce. Add mash potato onto the top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 180C until the Parmesan cheese have turned golden brown.
  8. Meanwhile use he leftover fish stock, add cream, milk and lecithin to create foam.
  9. To assemble: Remove the pie from the stove and assemble the mussels and clams we kept from before. Sprinkle some fine potato chips, garnish with micro greens and fish stock foam.
