Also good cooking :
**********************************
Gambas au feu de pommes (Mediterranean prawn dish)
Recipe by Michel Bruneau from the "La Bourride" restaurant in Caen
Ingredients and quantity to serve 4 people.
12 to 16 Mediterranean prawns according to size.
130 grams of � salt butter.
One spoonful of olive oil
8 sprigs of fresh thyme.
Milled salt and pepper.
10 cl of Calvados Grand Solage from Boulard
One bunch of plain parsley.
Salt and pepper your Mediterranean prawns. In a large frying pan, brown your Mediterranean prawns for 5 to 6 mins using half of the butter and the olive oil. Add the Calvados and the thyme and flamb�. Add the remaining butter and finish cooking for 3 to 4 mins. Complete by decorating with the parsley.
*************************************************
Etag� de veau de Charlevoix aux champignons Portabello, cr�meuse de pommes de Rougemont flamb�es au Calvados (Layered veal and mushroom dish)
Recipe by Christian L�v�que from the Intercontinental in Montreal
400 g of veal fillet
2 Portobello mushrooms
2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
45 g of butter
1 apple cut into squares
2 chopped shallots
30 ml of Calvados Boulard
80 ml of veal stock or demi-glace sauce.
125 ml of fresh cream
250 g of spinach
QS salt and pepper
10 fresh oregano leaves.
Cut the veal fillet into twelve round slices, and salt and pepper these. Slice the mushrooms. Heat up the oil and 15 g of butter in a deep frying pan. Seal the veal for 1 minute on each side (till the meat is pink) and put it to one side. Shallow fry the mushrooms in 15 g of butter and put to 1 side. Add the diced apples and allow them to sweat for 3 minutes. Add the chopped shallots and cook for one minute. Flamb� the mixture in Boulard Calvados. Add the veal stock and the cream, reducing the initial volume by a quarter. Check the seasoning. Shallow fry the spinach leaves in the rest of the butter, adding salt and pepper. On a plate, build up a stack using the Portobello mushrooms, alternating these layers with the veal medallions and the spinach. Possibly decorate with a chanterelle. Pour the sauce around your �tag� de Veau and decorate with fresh oregano.
Chef's tip : As the subtle tastes of apple in Calvados Boulard combines so well with the delicate juices of the meat, it is ideal for use in the preparation of saut�ed white meat.
