directions

Step 1

Mix the butter, anchovy and fresh herbs in a small bowl. Line a 2 inch by 4 inch dome shape terrine mold with plastic wrap. Note: You may use similar size mold. Cut the fish into 2 inch wide slices (or cut to the size of the terrine mold you have selected). Spread the fish on bottom of the terrine, add a thin layer of the anchovy butter and a layer of black truffle brush with white truffle oil. Repeat until you reach the top of the terrine.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours until firm. When you are ready to serve cut the terrine in 1 inch slices.

Step 2

Add olives in food processor and slowly add the oil, roasted garlic and verjus. Season and set aside.

Step 3

Add both ingredients into food processor. Refrigerate overnight and strain.

Step 4

Diced eight oz of tuna into a minced size portion allowing two oz per person. Add minced shallots, chives, chili oil and season. Set aside.

Step 5

Blanch green beans in boiling salting water for 1 minute and strain into an ice bath to stop the cooking. Make sure excess water is removed from the beans and place into a bowl.

Step 6

Place egg yolks, champagne, verjus and tarragon in a metal bowl set over a pan of hot water. Whisk evenly as fast as possible over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. When foam begins to subside and a texture changes to creamy like consistency the sabayon is ready for seasoning. If you like your sabayon acidic a couple drops of fresh lemon juice.

Step 7

Place a 2 inch portion of smoked terrine at one end of a large plate. Drizzle lemon oil over the top and around. In the middle of the plate spoon on 1 oz of Nicoise olive sauce and place the quail egg on top. Mix the haricot verde with the sabayon and place it at the end of the plate. Place a dollop of the tuna tartar over top, and enjoy!
