  • 75g of butter

Remove from the fridge, peel away the top piece of paper and on a chopping board, cut the crust into portions to reflect the size of your fish

To make the creamed leeks, blanch the chopped leeks in a large pot of boiling salted water for 3 minutes, until tender. When ready, drain and refresh in a bowl of iced water

In a separate pan, boil the double cream until you have a thick consistency. Add the drained leeks and reheat, season with salt, pepper and curry powder. Set aside until you are ready to serve

Remove the terrine from the tray, trim edges and slice into portions. Gently fry in a dry, non-stick pan until golden and crispy

  • 85ml of port
  • 250ml of veal stock
  • 250ml of fish stock
