Sausages

Ingredients

2 egg whites (see Note)
½ teaspoon salt
2 pounds tilefish or sea bass fillets, cut into ½-inch cubes (see    Note)
2 cups heavy cream (preferably not ultra-pasteurized; see Note)
1 pound fresh shrimp—peeled, deveined and coarsely chopped
1 pound sea scallops, coarsely chopped
Two 1½-pound lobsters—cooked, shelled and coarsely chopped
2 ounces pine nuts, toasted
Salt
Cayenne pepper
Port
Brandy
Pork casings, cleaned

Directions

  1. In a food processor, combine the egg whites, salt and tilefish. Puree, gradually adding the heavy cream.
  2. Pour the tilefish mixture into a metal mixing bowl. Add the shrimp, scallops, lobster and pine nuts. Mix well and season with salt, cayenne pepper, port and brandy.
  3. Stuff the seafood mixture into the pork casings and tie into sausage links about 4 inches long.
  4. Poach the sausages over low heat until thoroughly heated and the water approaches the simmering point. (Do not allow the water to boil. If the water becomes too hot, the sausages will burst.) Remove the sausages from the heat and allow them to cool in the poaching liquid; chill.

Note: Make sure this ingredient is very cold.




Beurre Blanc Sauce

Ingredients

¼ cup red wine vinegar
½ bottle white wine
¼ cup finely chopped shallots
3 teaspoons heavy cream (preferably not ultra-pasteurized)
¾ pound cold sweet butter, cut into small cubes
Salt
Pepper

Directions

  1. In a nonaluminum pot, reduce the vinegar, white wine and shallots until almost dry.
  2. Add the cream and reduce again by half. Over low heat, whisk in the butter. Season with salt and pepper. Add additional vinegar if needed.
  3. Slash the top of each sausage; brush all the sausages with the butter mixture. Broil until just browned.
  4. Lower the oven to 350ºF; heat the sausages in the oven until they’re warmed through. Serve over beurre blanc sauce.
