614 300 80 1  delirium groot

Cod is a solid fish species with a specific character which allows the old Postel cheese to stand out even better. And letting the cheese stand out was exactly what I aimed for, in combination with the full-bodied Delirium Tremens. 

Ingredients for 4 people: 

  •  4 cod cheeks or fillets
  • 100 gr butter
  • 50 gr bread crumbs
  • 50 gr of grated old Postel cheese
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 dl Delirium
  • 250 gr clarified butter
  • a dash of olive oil
  • half a lemon 

Melt the butter and bake the panko golden brown. Let it cool down and mix with the cheese. Then mix the egg yolks with the beer. Beat up at a low temperature and gently add small pieces of the clarified butter to prepare the sauce. Spice with some pepper and salt. Bake the cod cheeks in the olive oil and sprinkle with some lemon juice. Serve with the crumble of old Postel cheese and the mousseline sauce.
