Butterfish with braised morels, asparagus and truffle foam

Course Main Course
Alaska Product Alaska Black Cod
Servings 4


  • 400 ml red wine
  • 4 tablespoon sugar
  • a knob of butter
  • 800 g fresh morels 20 g if dry
  • 400 ml sherry
  • 1000 ml beef stock
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 green asparagus
  • 2400 g butterfish black cod
  • pinch of salt
  • extra-virgin olive oil

For the foam:

  • 1200 ml water
  • 400 ml truffle oil
  • 80 g soy lecithin


  • Heat the wine with the tablespoon of sugar until it has reduced by half.
  • In a frying pan, braise the cleaned morels in the knob of butter, add the sherry carefully so it doesn’t flambé, and leave to reduce. Add the beef stock and the red wine reduction and leave to thicken. Keep aside.
  • In a blender, mix the foam ingredients until they emulsify and form a truffle foam. Keep it in this state until it is time to serve.
  • Cut the black cod into 4 pieces, 3 cm wide by 7-8 cm long. Sear on each side in a frying pan with a pinch of salt and a drop of olive oil.
  • While the black cod is cooking, blanch the asparagus in boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute depending on their thickness, and then chill immediately in iced water and drain. Sauté in a frying pan with a drop of olive oil and salt.
  • Arrange the black cod with the braised morels and sautéed asparagus and top with a spoonful of truffle foam.
  • Serve immediately.
