Oyster Rocks Soup Pails
Serves 24


¼ lb Jamon Serrano (Spanish ham), shaved paper thin

2 lg russet potatoes, diced fine

2 lg carrots peeled and diced fine

1 leek diced fine and washed
48 smoked oysters (see recipe)
2 qt spinach fennel bisque (see recipe)
¼ oz black caviar
Micro celery for garnish

ingredients for the bisque
1 rib celery diced fine
½ onion diced fine
1 clove garlic, minced fine
Bulb of one fennel diced fine
1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
2 cups heavy cream
5 cups whole milk
½ cup flour
½ cup whole butter, unsalted
1 bay leaf

method and instructions
In a medium sauce pot, melt butter. Add onion, garlic, fennel and celery. Sautee over medium high heat until onions are soft. Add flour and stir for about 1 minute. Meanwhile, in another sauce pan, heat heavy cream, milk and bay leaf until it’s almost boiling. Add spinach. Stir for one minute. Reduce heat down to medium.
 One spoonful at a time, begin to add the vegetable roux mixture. Stir well after each spoonful is added. Repeat until its all incorporated. Add bay leaf. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for another 20 minutes, stirring often to avoid flour sticking to bottom. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove bay leaf and discard. Using an immersion blender, blend bisque until smooth.

Instructions For the vegetables

Bring  a large pot of water to boil. Add salt to make the water salty like the sea. Begin by blanching the diced carrots and potatoes for about 10 minutes or until soft when forked. Remove from the water and immediately add to ice cold water to stop them from cooking. Set aside until ready to build.

To build the soup
Using a container or bowl, place one nice shaving of the ham in the bottom followed  by the potatoes, oysters, and carrots . Next, pour some of the hot bisque over the top. Garnish with caviar and micro celery.
