Introduction: Fish and Cauliflower Souffle
Eggs, fish juice and cauliflower - these are the base ingredients for this souffle which is very rich and quite delicious. Serve small portions and marry it with some lightly butter-cooked asparagus and a spoonful of mashed potato. Mmmmm!
This is another of our multi-purpose meals. We used the left over juice from cooking Fish Cakes to add the fish component and so achieved a highly flavored souffle at minimal cost...good thinking that person!
On to the kitchen!
Step 1: Ingredients
For this dish you will need:
- 2 Cups of fish juice from Fish Cakes (or use fish stock)
- juice from 2 tins of salmon
- 2 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons of Apple Core Wine or white wine
- 50 grams of butter plus 1 tablespoon
- 3 sprigs of spring onion
- 1 heaped cup of grated cheese
- 2 Cups Pureed Cauliflower
- 6 eggs
- 1/3 cup of flour
- salt and pepper to taste
Step 2: Using the Base Fish Liquid
You'll see we've used the liquid that was left over from Step 2 of Making fish cakes. Pour this into a large pan then over a low heat add the juice from the canned salmon, lemon juice and wine (don't let the bottle confuse you - we stored our homemade apple core wine in a recycled vodka bottle...I don't suggest vodka as an alternative to wine!).
Finally, add the 1 tablespoon of butter. When the butter has melted put this base liquid into a jug - we'll use it soon.
Step 3: Making a White Sauce
Cut up the 50 grams of butter, melt in a pan over a low heat then add flour. This will thicken as you continuously stir leaving you with a smooth sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Step 4: Into the Pan
Stir in the fish sauce from Step 2 and cook for 5 minutes. Put aside for use in Step 6.
Step 5: Spring Into the Onion
Finely chop the spring onion and grate the cheese.
Step 6: Beat the Egg
In a large bowl whisk together the eggs then add the cheese. Mix together then add the cauliflower puree. Finally add the white sauce and stir in.
Step 7: Mix It Through
Mix everything together and pour into a baking dish.
Step 8: Mmmm, You Lovely Thing
Bake in an 180 C (356 F) oven for 35 minutes or until cooked.
