  • Juice of 1 lemon or 40 g
  • 1 teaspoon saffron threads or 3 g
  • 2 cubes MAGGI Chicken Bouillon Less salt
  • 500 ml water
  • 4 tomatoes or 492 g, peeled and diced
  • Pinch of chopped tarragon
  • Pinch of chopped thyme
  • Freshly ground white pepper
  • For the celery root mousse:
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar or 30 g
  • 1 small celery root or 400 g
  • 2 tablespoons butter or 28 g
  • 2 tablespoons reduced fat cream or 30 g
  • Freshly ground white pepper

How to Prepare

  1. Cook the celery root in boiling water and process it to a puree. Transfer it to a sauce pan and stir over medium heat to dry the puree. Add butter, cream and white pepper and set aside.
  2. Thinly slice the celery ribs on a slight diagonal. Dip briefly in boiling water and refresh immediately.
  3. Fillet the fish and season with lemon juice. Spread a thin layer of celery root mousse on the fillets and top with overlapping pieces of celery to form scales.
  4. To prepare the sauce, stir the saffron threads and MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon Less Salt cubes into the water. Let it boil and then, add the diced and peeled tomatoes and chopped herbs. Season with freshly ground pepper.
  5. Place the fish fillet in an oven-proof dish and pour in white vinegar and the sauce. Bake for about 8 mins at 190°C. Ladle some sauce onto the warmed plates and top with the fillets.
