We often did this in our corporate cooking lesson
Guinea fowl saltimbocca with frothy garlic sauce and cavolo nero with red onions and parmesan
Sserves 10!!
5 double guinea fowl breasts we bought the breast with stick thus a small piece of wing bone ..
2 lemons
1 bunch of sage leaves
400g coppa di Parma
4 cloves of garlic (smoked)
salt and pepper
2 glasses of marsala
25 g butter
Garlic sauce
1 glass of dry white wine
2 shallots
3 dl bouillon
3 cloves of garlic
branch of thyme
1 bay leaf
2 dl whipped cream
100 g cold butter
Cut an opening under the skin of the double breasts
Chop the lemons and coppa di Parma in chunks. Deep fry the sale leaves in some olive oil and crumb them over the lemons and the coppa di Parma. Put everything including the garlic in the food processor. Chop with the pulse button. Place a spoon of this mixture under the skin of the breasts.
Season with salt and pepper and place the breasts at least an hour in the fridge.
Fry the breasts in a pan then place them on a tray, deglaze the pan with marsala and pour the sauce over the breasts.
Bake in a hot oven for 7 minutes.
To serve you cut the breast in the middle and then you slice every breast in 5 slices.
Reduce the gravy, whisk some butter through and season to taste
Fir the garlic sauce: Blanche the garlic in the cream. Save the cream. Remove the garlic and peel the skin. Sautee the shallots in some butter, add the white wine and reduce until a third. Then add the bouillon, the garlic and the thyme and reduce until half. Remove the herbs and add the cream, puree the sauce with a hand blender just before serving so it becomes all frothy.
