Legendary Dishes | Rillettes de Fumé Haddock et Cuillères Citronnées (potted smoked haddock on bread spoons)

FRANCE

A curious tradition has begun to emerge in Europe with the availability of silicon moulds for cooking. One of the more creative inventions is a dish made with bread spoons topped with potted haddock. The recipes vary from baker to chef and back again via the domestic cook. This version is a firm potted haddock served on a bread spoon flavoured with rosemary and lemon.

Bread
150 g flour 
60 g butter 
30 g hard cheese, grated
1 lemon, zest
1 small lemon, juiced 
5 g rosemary, chopped
Seasonings
Rillettes

1 egg, hard-boiled, cooled, mashed
45 ml lemon juice
20 g butter
20 g flour
5 g black pepper
Salt, large pinch

Preheat oven to 180°C. For the bread spoons rub the butter into the flour, add the cheese, rosemary and seasonings followed by the juice and zest, form into a loose dough. Roll dough to a thickness 1 cm, press into spoon moulds. Bake spoons for 30 minutes. Leave to cool.

For the rillettes, make a roux, add lemon juice. Flambé, add the egg and haddock, stir to incorporate the roux. Spoon into ramekins, leave to cool, refrigerate for an hour.
