Treat your loved one to a special Valentine's Day meal created by the chefs at Mont Rochelle. Bring a taste of Franschhoek, considered to be the foodie capital of South Africa, to your home with a refreshing and tempting cocktail, The Mont Rochelle W&T, followed by a mouthwatering garlic and parsley salmon, poached egg and warm vegetable salad main course.
Makes one cocktail
This is one of the easiest and most rewarding dishes to make and will look stunning on your Valentine's table!
The key is to prepare all the ingredients in advance as it will take the same time to cook the fish as it will to warm up the ingredients.
4 180g Portions of salmon
This recipe works particularly well with Norwegian salmon and trout, but most line fish can be used.
16 Fine beans, tops cut off, leaving the tail for presentation
12 Red baby tomatoes, cut in half
12 Boiled baby potatoes, cooled and sliced into 4 discs
¼ Red onion, thinly sliced
4 Soft poached eggs - once cooked, keep these warm in an oven on low heat or in a bain marie while you complete the other steps of the recipe
2tbs Basil pesto
2tbs Italian parsley, finely chopped
1tbs Fresh garlic, thinly sliced
Juice of half a lemon
2tbs Extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
We recommend pairing the dish with the MIKO Chardonnay 2016.
