Recipe for 4 people
Preparation: 15 min
Prick a free-range guinea fowl with 2 garlic cloves and 2 small unpeeled shallots. Prepare a mixture of one tablespoon of olive oil, and colza oil, and brush the oil mixture all over the poultry. Place in a non stick pan.
Make the salt crust: in a bowl, mix 2.5 kg of TRAD Y SEL grey sea salt, 500 g of egg whites and 2 tablespoons of thyme, preferably fresh. In an ovenproof dish, make a base with part of the mixture, place the guinea fowl on top. Cover with the rest of the coarse salt mixture.
Cook in the oven at 180°C thermostat 6 for 1h30.
Before serving, break the salt crust in front of your guests. Accompany the guinea fowl with a shredded cabbage fondue and the meat juice flavoured with green pepper.
Cooking in a salt crust enables an incomparable moistness, a concentration of flavours and reduces the use of oils and fats.
