Black Pudding with Coarse Cheese and Horseradish
I just got back from The Philippines for a conference. As usual crappy food on the plane, so a little peckish what can I eat? A quick rummage in my food fridge, and I spot the stuff I bought last week at my mate Chris’s, The Cheese Shop @ Joo Chiat. And what did I create, well I created Black Pudding with Coarse Cheese and Horseradish.
ALL items were bought from his joint. I am so happy now, knowing that this is going to taste so so good. I’m loving the thought of this dish, Black Pudding with Coarse Cheese and Horseradish. But what went in to it – one plate wonder.
- 4 slices of black pudding (I’ll just add, a must have in anyone’s fridge) – keep the skin on;
- A good 5″ chunk of Boern Trots cheese (probably one of the best cheeses I have ever had);
- A good dollop of horseradish; and
- Some smoked paprika.
How to make?
- In a pan add some oil and throw in the black pudding;
- The reason for keeping the skin on is that it will keep the pudding together as it fries;
- Leave for a couple of minutes, and you’ll see it should have crisped and slightly shrunk. Turn it over and repeat on other side;
- Now peel the skin off carefully;
- In parallel, cube the cheese up and get that in a pan on the heat – yep it’s mini fondue time. Lowish heat and watch it melt.
That it my friends. Plating time for Black Pudding with Coarse Cheese and Horseradish. Lay the puddings on top of each other, like in the photo. Spoon over the melted cheese. Dollop some horseradish, and to do Chef thing with back of spoon to make it look nice. From up high, sprinkle all over with some smoked paprika. Ta Da, finished. How good does that look!
