Black pepper pastry cream
Preparation time: 30 min
Preheat your four at 350 °F
- General preparation
Cut the pineapple flesh into a small dice. Chop the coriander. Bake the almonds in the oven a few minutes until golden.
- Black pepper pastry cream preparation
In a small saucepan, bring milk to a boil, season with a few turns of freshly ground black pepper from the peppermill. Beat egg and sugar until the mixture whitens. Incorporate the flour and mix. Pour half the hot milk mixture onto the eggs and sugar, mix well and transfer back in the pan, whisking constantly for 3 minutes after it reaches a boil. Pour onto a baking sheet lined with plastic wrap, cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator. Whip the whipping cream until smooth but not to firm. Whisk the cooled custard to smooth it. Gently fold 1/3 of the whipped cream into the custard, then add the rest.
- Marinated pineapple preparation
Mix the diced pineapple with chopped coriander, sugar and lime and marinate in the fridge at least 1 hour.
- Dressing your tapas
At the bottom of a jar, put some marinated diced pineapple. Drop a small amount of cream on top using a pastry bag and sprinkle a few toasted almonds.
