Ingredients
 

  • 1 ripe pomegranate
  • 8 oz small-leaved salad greens
  • 4 medium-sized lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices bread
  • 8 butter curls
  • 1 lemon
  • 12 thin slices rare beef fillet
  • 4 slices tinned truffle-flavoured foie gras
  • light olive oil
  • salt

Instructions

  • Peel the pomegranate and take out the seeds. Cut the bread slices diagonally in half, into two triangles, sand toast them lightly.
  • Use a butter curler or an ordinary knife to cut the butter curls out of very firm butter and place them in a small bowl of iced water. Just before serving, mix a simple dressing with 3 tbsp olive oil, 1 - 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice and a small pinch of salt, pour over the salad greens and toss until evenly mixed.
  • Heap an equal quantity of salad in the centre of 4 plates and place 3 slices of beef on top, sprinkle the pomegranate seeds on top.
  • Place a lettuce leaf beside each of these mounds, and put a slice of foie gras and 2 butter curls on each leaf. Lastly, arrange 2 slices of toast to one side of the foie gras.
  • Drizzle 1 - 1 1/2 tsp olive oil over each portion of beef and pomegranate seeds and serve.
