1
Remove the tail meat from the langoustine and set aside, reserving the shells to make a stock for the sauce. Peel and chop the onion, chop the leek and fennel and fry all 3 in a saucepan with a splash of oil. Add the langoustine shells and cook for a further 2 minutes
2
Add the garlic, star anise and white wine and pour in enough water to just cover. Simmer for 1 hour then strain through a sieve into another saucepan. Place back on the heat and reduce down to 200ml, then add the cream and reduce to a sauce consistency. Keep the sauce warm
3
Cut the black pudding into 2cm pieces and deep-fry at 180°C until just crispy. Remove and drain on kitchen paper
4
For the wild garlic crust, add the breadcrumbs, a few parsley leaves and 6 leaves of wild garlic to a blender and blitz until green in colour. Place in a bowl, mix through the melted butter and season with a little salt
5
Warm the sauce over a gentle heat, add the white beans and cook until the beans have warmed through. Add the langoustine meat and the crispy black pudding
  • 200g of white beans, cooked
6
To finish the sauce, add a little chopped wild garlic and reheat for 2 minutes. Spoon the mixture into a shallow serving dish or 4 individual dishes or ramekins
7
Sprinkle the wild garlic crumbs over the top and place under a hot grill to colour and crisp up the crumb. Serve immediately
