  • 1/2 egg yolk
  • 8g of Parmesan
  • 3g of olive oil
  • 4g of salt

Lightly dust a work bench with flour. Take the ball of dough, place it on the bench and roll into long, snake-like lines. Cut and shape the gnocchi into 1 x 2 inch portions and pinch in the middle to form pillows

Bring a large pan of water to the boil

Reduce the water to a simmer and gently place the gnocchi into the water. Once the gnocchi begins to float to the top of the pan, it is ready. Gently strain, refresh in iced water, then strain again and place on an oiled tray. Wrap the tray with cling film and set aside until ready to plate
  • 300ml of iced water
7
To prepare the asparagus, peel the asparagus lengthways down the stalk, reserving all of the trimmings for the purée. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and blanch the asparagus for 2 minutes. Remove from the pan, refresh in iced water and set aside until ready to use
  • 18 asparagus spears
  • 1000g of water
  • 1 pinch of salt

To make the purée, bring another pan of salted water to the boil. Add the asparagus trimmings and cook for 5 minutes
  • 1000g of water
9
Once the asparagus trimmings are soft, remove from the pan and transfer to a blender. Blitz on high power, slowly adding spoonfuls of the cooking water until it begins to blend without resistance
10
Add the xanthan gum and continue to blend for 10 seconds. Pass the mixture through a fine chinos, season to taste with salt then store the purée in a bottle at room temperature until ready to use
  • 2g of xanthan gum
  • salt to season

Before cooking the bream, prepare the saffron fume. Place all of the ingredients in a small pan and gently warm to 60˚C. Once the temperature has been reached, use a stick blender to blitz the mixture until it forms a foam. Season to taste with salt

Finally, cook the sea bream. Place a large frying pan over a medium heat and add a dash of olive oil to the pan. Once hot, place the fish skin-side down and cook the for 2 minutes, or until the skin is crispy. Add the butter and turn the fish, cooking for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave the fish in the pan. Season to taste with salt

To serve, place a swipe of purée on the base of the plate. On top of the purée, stack the asparagus, warm blanched peas, the bream and arrange the gnocchi around the plate.
