Chablis 1er Cru Montmains
A magnificaent wine of light golden colour, with a nose of remarkable aromatic expression: green apple and pear notes are enhanced by subtle citrus fragrances which will merge superbly with the aubergine caviar aromas, while the flavour of the mullet will be boosted by the minerality and elegant vigour of this Chablis Premier Cru.
Heat the oven to 180°C (gas mark 6).
Cut the aubergines in half, lengthways, and criss-cross the flesh with a knife. Peel and chop the garlic
cloves. Insert the slices of garlic into the cuts in the aubergines. Sprinkle with olive oil, then season
with salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 40 to 50 minutes at 180°C.
When cooked, remove the flesh using a spoon, then let it drain for 30 minutes in a sieve. Crush the
flesh with a knife and check the seasoning.
Grill or toast the slices of bread.
Heat the oven to 200°C (gas mar k 6/7).
Place the fillets of red mullet, seasoned with salt, in an ovenproof dish, skin side up. Cook for 200°C
for 5 to 6 minutes.
Spread the slices of toast with the aubergine caviar. Place the sundried tomatoes on top, add a few
pine nuts, then top with a fillet of red mullet. Decorate with the rocket and serve immediately
