IngredientsRecipe for 4 persons
For the Tatin
For the garnish
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Preparation time: 45 min
Preheat your four at 350 °F
- General preparation
Cut the tomatoes into thin slices. Chop the red onions. Prepare parmesan shavings using a vegetable peeler. Cut 4 circles of puff pastry, same size as the 4 ramekins you are going to use for your Tatins.
- Pancetta chips preparation
Place the slices of pancetta on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-15 minutes to get crispy chips. Once this step is done, increase the oven temperature to 400F.
- Tatin preparation
In nonstick skillet, drizzle some olive oil and fry the onion over high heat for a few minutes. Turn down the intensity of the heat and let the onions caramelize slowly for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place the tomato slices on paper towels. Add salt and let drain for a few minutes. At the bottom of your ramekins: pour a little drizzle of olive oil, place the sliced tomatoes and caramelized onions. Then add the circles of puff pastry and bake in oven for 15 to 20 minutes at 400F.
- To serve
Unmold the Tatin obtained on each plate. Create a small salad with arugula, a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil and place a portion of this salad on each of the Tatins. Garnish with the pancetta crisps and some Parmesan shavings.
Decorate your plate with a balsamic reduction for its scrumptious visual effect as well as for the perfect flavour match with tomato and arugula.
