In order to celebrate this Fiesta Friday I am bringing a simple but oh so delicious dish. I made it for friends and one even licked her plate!

I had some truffle pate left and I didn’t want it to go off and decided to make a range of truffle dishes. I didn’t want any of them to be too similar and the lovely fishmonger sold me a few of lobsters at a good price, what a lovely man! I went home with my catch and decided to make a beurre blanc with truffle to go with it, very naughty but very nice.

Beurre blanc is a classic sauce emulsified with butter so smooth as a dream. I normally wouldn’t use such amazing amounts of butter but with ingredients such as truffle and lobster I thought why not. The recipe calls for white wine but I had a bottle of champagne open so In used this instead.

 

Champagne beurre blanc with truffle 

preparation time 5 minutes 

cooking time about 10 minutes 

serves 4 

Ingredients

  • 1 large or 2 small shallot onions chopped fine
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • 1 dl or 1/2 cup white wine or champagne
  • 100 gr butter, cut in to cubes
  • 1/2 tsp truffle pate

Place the fine chopped shallot onion and vinegar in a pan and reduce to half. Whisk in the cream first and then the butter, cube by cube. The butter emulsifies the liquid and creates a wonderfully smooth sauce. You can put the sauce through a sieve and have a smooth sauce but I like the flavour of the shallot onions so I always keep them.

The sweet lobster and the silky beurre blanc was a treat, even better with a glass of cold champagne on a warm summers night. I didn’t want to go in and got sitting outside with my friends chatting about everything and nothing until early morning hours, it was a moment for just enjoying life.

      Hi Sarah
      Thank you, am so glad you like it, it is so easy to make, I bought the lobster cooked. The beurre blanc is very naughty but so delicious I couldn’t resist making some 🙂

  2. You tweaked my taste buds Petra – just perfect; lobster with a cream sauce and I am in heaven. I would love to be your favorite neighbor (where I got invited over for dinner often)! Never used truffle pate – is it pricey? Happy Fiesta Friday and so happy to be co-hosting with one of the favorite bloggers on FF!

      hi Judi
      If you were my neighbour I am sure we would meet all the time to discuss, compare, share and eat some gorgeous foods! The truffle pate was a gift but I don’t think it was too expensive, I am sure it would work with truffle oil as well if you have some, it just adds a little extra! Thank you for all your help co hosting, it is great and Fiesta Friday is my favourite blog party, even better with you by my side, I am always enjoying your posts but am trying not to read them when I am hungry! ha ha x

      Hi Josette

  8. What a beautiful dish Petra!! I’m feeling pretty jealous that I don’t get to have it! The Lobster in itself is so beautiful and then to top it with Beurre blanc (WITH TRUFFLE??) Just makes this even more decadent!

  9. OMG, you have me drooling all over my keyboard! You make the best meals, seriously!!! Lobster + Beurre blanc + truffle! Gawd!!

    • petra08 says:

      Your lovely comment makes me smile! It was a great combination! I have a friend who is a chef and I discussed this with him quite a few times before putting the dish together but I think he would have liked some as well! 🙂 x
