Prawn and Smoked Haddock Choux Pastry Puffs with Marie Rose sauce

Prawn and Smoked Haddock Choux Pastry Puffs with Marie Rose sauce

For the choux pastry:

  • 55gs (4oz) butter (cubed)
  • 75gs (5oz) plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 75ml water
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 50gs Atlantic prawns (chopped)
  • 50gs smoked haddock (2cm dice)
  • 8gs basil (shredded)
  • Juice and zest of half a lemon

In a medium pot add in the butter, water and salt and cook till the butter has melted.

Then add in the flour and mix until starts to form a dough ball in the centre of the pot.

Remove from heat and cool for 3-5 minutes.

Once cool, beat in 1 egg at a time until fully mixed until all are added, the end result should hold a soft peak and be glossy.

Fold in the rest of the ingredients.

For the Marie Rose sauce:

  • 200gs mayonnaise
  • 50gs tomato ketchup
  • Half a tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp Worstershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Heat vegetable oil in a deep-fryer to 190 c or you can use a saucepan half full with oil and heat a cube of bread until it turns golden in 6-7 seconds when dropped in. Once the oil has reached its temperature, use two spoons and quenelle 3-5 into the oil – they will take 3-4 minutes to cook. Lift them out, drain them on kitchen paper and then start the next batch.

To serve, arrange three haddock and prawn puffs with dressed mixed leaves and a generous spoonful of the Marie Rose sauce.
