Cod with chives and black garlic

How this dish came about so I cannot say. At least, I still had some chive cream in the fridge and it had to either go on or go. But you would say there are still some steps between that fact and this dish…

It turned out really well because it turned out to be a really delicious dish! The flavors of black garlic and chives complement each other nicely and match very well with the fish. To be fair, it is a laborious dish. Fortunately, you make more of the components than you need, so you can use that again later. This is how I used the aubergine creamème also in combination with a Wellington…

To work!
