Tatin of Goose Liver and Caramelized Yellow Banana with Glazed Shallots and Green Lime
Recipe for 4 Persons

Ingredients:

16

ounces (453.59 grams)

fresh goose liver

14

ounces (400 grams)

puff pastry (feuilletage)

  2

 

green limes

  4

 

bananas

  4

ounces (100 grams)

shallots

  9

ounces (250 grams)

butter

1.5

ounces (40 grams)

cane sugar

   6

ounces (150 grams)

white sugar

½

liter

poultry stock

½

liter

water

 

 

salt, pepper

Method: Roll out the puff pastry and cut it into a 4-inch (10 centimeter) diameter circle. Slice the shallots very thin and sweat them in a pan with butter for approximately 1 hour, stirring them regularly.

Peel the limes, and cut the peels into fine julienne pieces. Blanch and glaze them in ½ liter water and white sugar for 45 minutes. Reduce the juice of the poultry stock and the lime peels over low heat.

Cut the bananas into large pieces, sauté them in the butter with the sugar cane and caramelize them. Add the glazed shallots and pour everything into a small frying pan (blinis size). Arrange them on top of the circle of puff pastry.

Bake in the oven at 350° F (177° C) for 6 minutes. Remove the tart from the oven and place on the serving plate. Cut thick slices of goose liver. Sauté the goose liver in a very warm frying pan without adding any fat. Lightly pat the goose liver with a towel and place on top of the tart. Add a pinch of Fleur de Sel and a ribbon of sauce all around the plate and garnish with some lime peel.

Chef Hervé suggests that you serve a 1998 Chateau de Malle, Sauternes with the Tatin of Goose Liver and Caramelized Yellow Banana with Glazed Shallots and Green Lime.
