Preparation

  • Mix the lemon zests, salt, bay leaf and juniper berries. Let the mixture sit on the counter for 2 hours. Rinse quickly with water and let it dry in a dry area (ex. under a heat lamp).

Pomegranate vinaigrette

  • Cover the shallots in the champagne vinegar and let sit for 15 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and mix.

Appareil

  • Bread the Noyan in the flour, egg and panko. Fry and bake for 5 minutes. In a frying pan, sweat the shallot, garlic and almonds. Add the girolles, thyme, salt and pepper. Add the white wine and poultry stock. Allow to reduce a little and emulsify with butter and a dash of lemon juice. Fry the cisco (skin-side down) until crispy.

Presentation

  • Place the cisco on top of the mushrooms. Add the Noyan croquette and 15 ml (1 tbsp.) of the pomegranate vinaigrette with a few salted lemon zests.
