Oh, lardydar. 😉 You often find the use of Celeriac in fine dining establishments, accompanied by other elements on this dish including Sea Bass and Asparagus. Celeriac is from the same family as Celery, but it’s grown purposefully for it’s bulbous root and versatility in the kitchen. As in this dish, if you mash this root vegetable up with a dollop of Butter and seasoning it’s similar to potato mash but with a more rooty lighter mouthfeel and less carbs. Of course, we put a ‘proper’ portion on the plate in addition to balancing it with the sophisticated flavours of the pan-fried buttery Sea Bass, tender Asparagus and fruity sweetness of the Beetroot puree. Finished off with some Parsley Sauce and you have an elegant, healthy and nutritious meal.
This is my standard BIG plate preference. For a smaller lower calorie option, reduce to 300g Celeriac, 15g Grass Fed Butter and one Sea Bass fillet. This will save you 307 calories, whilst maintaining the experience and flavours of this meal.
