Recipe - how do you make it

Recipe - steps

  • 1 With a peeler, pull some strips of the orange peel. Avoid the white of the peel, this tastes bitter. Squeeze the oranges and sieve the juice.
  • 2 Put the juice and the strips in a pan. Boil half the juice on low heat. Do not let the juice turn brown (discoloration indicates caramelization of the sugars, which is not desired for this dish).
  • 3 Let the orange juice in the fridge get cold through and through.
  • 4 Take the juice out of the fridge, remove the strips and bite the juice with some lime juice.
  • 5 Put a few drops of sesame oil through the juice with a fork.
  • 6 Divide the juice over four plates with a small dimple.
  • 7 Divide the cod liver over the plates.
  • 8 Garnish the dish with pomegranate seeds, the sea salt and pieces of baie pink.
