Roulade Ingredients

Please note that these ingredients are listed per portion. So multiply them according to the number of guests you have:

  • 1 queen prawn
  • 1 fillet of sole
  • 1 slice smoked salmon
  • 1 large spinach leaf
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 an onion
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 toothpick

Champagne Reduction Ingredients

The ingredients for this reduction make enough for 6 roulades.

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 shallot finely diced
  • 1/2 cup champagne, dry
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Roulade Method

  • Flatten the filet of sole with a mallet (careful not to over flatten – it should retain its original shape)
  • Line the spinach on the fillet of sole, cutting the spinach to size
  • Add a layer of the smoked salmon to the same width and ¾ of the length of the fillet of sole
  • Place headless prawn on the top (head side) of the sole
  • Roll the fillet, leaving the prawn tail exposed, and secure with a toothpick

Once the roulade is secure, it needs to be cooked together.

  • Boil the water, with the bay leaf, onion and seasoning
  • Poach the roulade for 5 minutes – or until it is cooked
  • Remove from heat, drain off any residual water, and place on plate, prawn tail up
  • Serve with fresh dill and lemon as per the photograph

Champagne Reduction Method

  • In a saucepan over medium heat melt butter and sauté shallots till soft and translucent
  • Add champagne and simmer – reduce to half
  • Add heavy cream and simmer – reduce to half
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Drizzle over roulade as per the photograph

Does this sound like heaven on a plate? Make it at home or come and taste it first-hand during your stay at Makweti.
