First, make the cod mousse. Place a pan over a low-medium heat and add a dash of oil. Once hot, add the leeks and onions and sweat until soft but not coloured. Add the diced cod and cook until partially cooked, for 1-2 minutes, then add 450ml of the cream and bring to the boil

  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 450g of smoked cod, diced

Transfer the mix to a blender and blitz for 2 minutes. Pass the mix through a chinois, mix in the gelatine and place in a tray. Leave in the fridge until set

Once the mix is set, semi-whip the remaining cream and fold into the set mousse. Season to taste and store in the fridge until ready to serve

For the burnt vinaigrette, heat the butter in a pan until brown and slightly burnt. Mix in the red wine vinegar and remove from the heat

For the bread crisps, slice the bread wafer-thin and place under a hot grill, watching the whole time until lightly toasted
  • 1 bread
  • 4 slices of sourdough bread, very thin

Using a mandoline, finely slice the radish and 4 of the asparagus spears, then place in iced water to crisp up and curl. Trim and discard a 1/3 from the base of the remaining spears and cook for 2 minutes in salted boiling water. Refresh in iced water and set aside
