Squid Ink Flatbread with Smoked Cod's Roe
Lee Tiernan is back with his @blackaxemangal special - the epic looking squid ink flatbread topped with smoked cod's roe and an egg yolk.
FOR THE FLATBREAD:
5 x 100g BAM Flatbread dough balls recipe Replacing 10ml water with squid ink
5 egg yolks
3 tbsp butter melted
5 tbsp seaweed powder
Edible glitter to decorate
FOR THE SMOKED COD’S ROE
50g bread (crusts removed)
125ml of whole (full fat) milk
250g smoked cod’s roe, peeled
12.5g garlic, minced
250ml rapeseed/neutral oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt to taste
Make the flatbread in the same way as the BAM flatbread recipe - but portion the dough balls to 90g each.
To make the cod’s roe, soak the bread in the milk for an hour or so.
Put the soaked bread into a blender or food processor and add the cod’s roe and minced garlic. Start the machine on a medium speed for 1 min and then increase the speed to medium-high and add the oil slowly. The texture should be similar to hummus.
Once you’ve reached the consistency, check the seasoning. If the roe is particularly salty you may not need to add extra salt. Add the lemon juice to your taste, and chill in an airtight container until needed.
Once they are cooked, use a teaspoon to make a well in the centre. Add an egg yolk on top and drizzle some melted butter on top. Return to your oven and bake for 1 min.
When the yolk is just done, dollop the cod’s roe onto the top being careful not to break the yolk. Sprinkle the seaweed powder and edible glitter to finish.
