Miso-Glazed Skrei, Carrot And Ginger Purée And Crispy Kale:

An exclusive recipe from Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr.

 Serves 6


For The Glaze (prepare the night before):

 For The Purée:

For The Crispy Kale:

For The Fried Chickpeas:


1.) Prepare the glaze: place the mirin, soy sauce, sake and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat gently and mix until all the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and whisk in the miso paste together with sesame oil until combined. Leave to cool to room temperature. Coat the Skrei with the marinade, cover with cling film and infuse overnight.

2.) The next day, melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat. Add the carrots and ginger and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Pour in the stock, reduce heat and simmer for a further 8 to 10 minutes. Once the carrots are cooked and the liquid has reduced by 2/3 transfer the veggies and cooking liquor to a blender and purée. Once silky smooth, season to taste.

3.) Season the kale with oil, salt and pepper, coating all the leaves. Spread onto a baking tray and roast for 8 minutes (at 160°C) until crisp. Leave to cool.

4.) Heat oven to 200°C. Drain the chickpeas and rinse. Transfer to a kitchen towel and pat dry. Spread out onto a baking tray, season with a drizzle of oil, salt and paprika and roast for 25 minutes until crisp.

5.) 10 minutes prior to the chickpeas being cooked turn your attention to the Skrei. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan over a high heat. Sear the Skrei for 2 minutes on each side, caramelising its exterior. Transfer to a baking tray and place in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown.

6.) Serve on a drizzle of purée, delicately sprinkle the chickpeas and garnish with the crispy kale.

 Michelin-star chef Michel Roux Jr comments:

”As a chef, I am always looking for exceptional ingredients, Skrei cod is one of those that never lets me down. Skrei is so versatile and that’s why I love cooking with it. Whether it’s a French classic or a more contemporary dish, its quality always shines through. I am proud and honoured to be an Ambassador for what I consider to be one of the finest products of the sea.“
