In the warm afternoons of spring and summer, nothing is better than a fresh fish dish.
This week’s recipe features fresh Tiliapia and Champagne Beurre Blanc by Chef Majk. The fine dining YouTube chef formally worked for two-time Michelin star-winning eatery Restaurant Story in London, as well as the city's modern French restaurant Orrery. He teaches home cooks the techniques and plating skills necessary to wow the classiest of customers—your family.
Beurre Blanc, a typical french sauce made of emulsified butter, gets a sparkling addition in Chef Majk’s version. On top of the typical white wine vinegar and shallots, he adds champagne for a bubbly yet smooth finish. With an added scoop of caviar, this recipe screams luxury.
Paired with stuffed leeks and the pan-seared Tilapia, this sauce perfectly complements the lighter elements of the dish. The finishing touch of home-made spinach crisp adds yet another layer of texture, but the true star of the dish is its plating. Majk uses a large, round, dark plate so the colors of the sauce, fish and leeks can shine through.
While the recipe itself may be devoid of some measurements, follow along with Chef Majk’s video for the ultimate Tilapia-at-home recipe below and turn your dining room a Michelin-star experience.
