Written by Debra C. Argen   

Master Chef of France Francis DulucqChef de Cuisine of the hotel and Master Chef of France Francis Dulucq of Restaurant Le Chateaubriand at the Sofitel Bakoua in Les Trois-Ilets, Martinique, shares a few Caribbean secrets.

 

Master Chef of France Francis DulucqWhile I was in Martinique in April 2006, I stayed at the Sofitel Bakoua and had dinner at Restaurant Le Chateaubriand, and after experiencing a "Taste of Martinique" I convinced Chef Francis Dulucq to share a few of his recipe secrets with me. 

 

 

Red Snapper and Spices on a Bed of Papaya Sauerkraut, with Butter and Lime
Recipe for 4 persons
 

Ingredients:     

2

 

red snapper

1

kg (2.2 pounds)

papayas

8

 

juniper berries

¼  

liter (34 ounces)   

dry white wine

1

tablespoon

crème

3

 

bell pepper (red or yellow)

2

 

limes

2

grams (1/2 teaspoon)    

butter

 

 

salt, pepper, coriander seeds

1

tablespoon

bay leaf, ground

 

 

nutmeg, ground

 

 

cinnamon, ground

 

                                     

yellow onions

Method: Scale the fish and cut into 4 filets, or have the fishmonger prepare the filets for you. Cook the filets and set on a plate, and serve with the sauerkraut, and a butter and lime sauce.

Sauerkraut: Peel the papayas, grate the papayas and the onions, and put them in a pan with white wine, coriander seeds, juniper berries, salt, and bell pepper. Cover and cook for approximately 10-15 minutes and season to taste.

Caribbean Lobster and Yams Curry Style with Mille Feuilles
Recipe for 4 persons 

Ingredients:       

    1

kg (2.2 pounds)

spiny or rock lobsters

600  

grams (1.32 pounds)

yams

250

grams (8.82 ounces)       

butter

    4

 

bell peppers (red or yellow)

    1

tablespoon

colombo (Martinique curry)

 

 

fine salt, pepper, onion, garlic, celery stalk

 

 

fresh tomato and tomato paste

 

                                  

Rhum Vieux (aged rum), cream

Method: Peel the yams, slice, and then cut them using a round 9-cm diameter cutter to make them all the same size. Boil the yams with the curry until tender. Once cooked, remove them to a plate.

In a large pan, bring water with salt, pepper, onion, garlic, and the celery stalk to a boil. Once the water boils, add the lobster and simmer for 20 minutes. (Do not boil, which will toughen the lobster.) Remove the lobster from the water, let cool, remove shell, and cut the meat into disks. Reserve on a warm plate.

Crush the lobster shells. Cut the celery and onion into small pieces, and sauté with butter and the vegetables until golden brown. Add the crushed shells, add crushed garlic, and cook well. Flambé with the Rhum Vieux (aged rum). Add fresh tomatoes and tomato paste, the bell peppers and the cream. Cook for 20 minutes and then pass through a Chinois lined with cheesecloth. Correct seasonings to taste.

Put a yam disk on a plate and a layer of lobster in a rosette form. Add a little sauce all around the plate, and serve while hot. Repeat these steps on the other three plates. Decorate according to your imagination.
