1
Preheat a water bath to 60°C
2
To begin, place one small and one large Dover sole fillet together, ensuring they are top and tail (the narrow end of one fillet is against the thicker part of the other fillet)
  • 4 Dover sole fillets
3
Place in a large vacuum bag and seal in a chamber sealer. Repeat this process with the remaining fillets, seal in a separate vacuum bag and cook in the water bath for 30 minutes
4
Once cooked, place the vacuum bags in iced water and chill until the fillets have set together
5
To make the scallop velouté, sweat the vegetables and dill in a heavy-based pan with a drizzle of olive oil
  • 2 dill stalks
  • 1/2 white onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bulb of fennel, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stick, finely chopped
  • 1/2 leek, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
6
Heat the Pernod in a flambé pan and use a long-stemmed lighter to ignite the alcohol fumes. Cook until the flames have disappeared. If using a gas burner, make sure you remove the pan from the hob before flambéing
  • 25ml of Pernod
7
Add the flambéed Pernod to the vegetables along with the white wine and simmer until the liquid has reduced by half
  • 100ml of white wine
8
Add the fish stock and scallop skirts to the saucepan, bring to the boil and reduce the liquid by three quarters. Pour in the cream, simmer for a further 5 minutes then season with pepper and remove from the heat
  • 500ml of fish stock
  • 100g of scallop skirts
  • 250ml of double cream
9
To make the parsley oil, add the olive oil and parsley to a blender and blitz to a purée. Place the mixture in a cheesecloth, hang over a bowl and allow the liquid to drip until all the oil has been strained through
  • 125ml of olive oil
  • 250ml of flat-leaf parsley, picked and blanched
10
For the mashed potato, place the potatoes in a saucepan, cover with cold water and season with salt. Bring to a boil and simmer until soft but not overcooked, the potatoes should still hold their shape
  • 165g of potato, peeled and cut into quarters
  • salt
11
Drain the potatoes and leave to steam for about 10 minutes so that any excess water evaporates. Pass them through a mouli or potato ricer and fold in the butter and milk. Season to taste and place in a piping bag
  • 40g of whole milk
  • 40g of unsalted butter
12
Slice the baby leeks in half and heat in a hot pan until slightly charred. Finish with a sprinkle of salt and a drizzle of olive oil
  • 2 baby leeks
  • olive oil
  • sea salt
13
In a medium saucepan, sweat the fennel over a medium heat until just cooked. Add the shallots and sea vegetables and keep warm
  • 2g of sea purslane
  • 2g of rock samphire
  • 4g of salty finger leaf
  • 2 tsp shallots, finely chopped
  • 10g of fennel, diced
14
Stir the mussels and shrimp into the velouté and warm gently for 5 minutes, or until the mussels have opened and the shrimp are cooked. Discard the mussel shells
  • 6 mussels
  • 10g of brown shrimp
15
Preheat a deep-fryer to 160°C
16
Coat the sole fillets in seasoned flour then gently shake off any excess flour. Dip the fillets into the egg wash and then the Panko breadcrumbs, ensuring the fish is coated evenly
  • 10g of flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 10g of Panko breadcrumbs
17
Carefully deep-fry until golden and crisp on both sides. Drain the fillets on kitchen paper and set aside until ready to serve
18
To serve, pipe the mash into bowls, forming round mounds. Add the velouté and mussels to one side of the piped mash
19
Place the crispy Dover sole over the mash, followed by the charred leeks and fennel cress. Finish with a drizzle of parsley oil and a sprinkle of chopped chives
  • 2 tsp chives, finely chopped
  • 2g of fennel cress
