Smoked Salmon Rosti's with Poached Eggs and Beurre Blanc

You will need
For the Rostis:
800g Rooster Potatoes
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
2 tsp Cumin Seeds
2 tsp Coriander Seeds
1 tsp Fennel Seeds
3 tsp Ground Turmeric
60g Cornflour
1 Egg for the Rosti
200g Smoked Salmon Chopped
Olive Oil for Frying
To Serve:
2 eggs Per Person for Poaching
Splash of Vinegar
Mixed leaves to Serve
Beurre Blanc Sauce:
2 tbs Olive Oil
1 Shallots Finely Chopped
60ml White Wine
Juice of 1 Lemon
1 tbsp Caster Sugar
100ml Single Cream
150g Chilled Unsalted Butter, Chopped into Cubes
- Preheat the oven to 100°C and grease a baking tray for keeping the rosit’s hot .
- Grate the potatoes and place in a bowl of cold water to get rid of some of the starch. Drain the water off with a sieve and repeat again. Squeeze out the excess water in the sieve and then place the grated potato into tea towel and wring out the remaining excess water.
- Transfer the potato into a bowl, add the lemon and stir.
- Toast the cumin, coriander and fennel seeds on a dry pan. Transfer into a pestle and mortar and grind to a powder.
- Add all the spices, cornflour and one beaten egg to the potato mixture and toss until combined. Then mix in the smoked salmon.
- Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Then in batches, spoon the potato mixture into the pan making circular rosti’s pressing them into shape using a spatula. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side until golden.
- Transfer the first batch of rosti’s onto the baking tray and place in oven to keep warm while you make the rest.
- For the beurre blanc sauce, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium to low heat. Add the shallots and cook for about 10 minutes until softened but not coloured.
-Then add the wine, lemon juice and sugar. Increase the heat and bring to a simmer. Cook for 3 minutes or until reduced by half. Add cream and cook again until reduced by half.
- Now remove from the heat and gradually whisk in butter, 1 piece at a time. Allow for each piece to melt before adding the next. When all the butter is added the sauce will thicken. Keep warm.
- Poach the eggs in batches in boiling water with a splash of vinegar.
To serve:
Place the mixed green leaves around the plate. Stack 2-3 rosti’s on each plate and top with 2 poached eggs. Then drizzle all over with the beurre blanc sauce.
Look at you fancy schmancy!
