    yieldsserves 4 time--- difficulty easy

    For canapés, form 24 small shrimp cakes and top each one with a small spoonful of the salsa after they are fried.


    • 18-ounce sole fillet, diced
    • 1 pound cooked medium shrimp, diced
    • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions
    • 2 tablespoons minced chives
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons Basic Mayonnaise (page 56)
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • Cayenne pepper
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • Olive oil for frying
    • Clarified butter for frying
    • Cool and Spicy Cucumber Salsa (recipe follows)
    • 4 sprigs chervil


    To prepare the shrimp cakes:

    Purée the sole in a food processor fitted with the metal blade until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and add the shrimp, scallions, chives, parsley, lemon juice, and mayonnaise. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Form the mixture into 8 patties, cover with plastic, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

    Place the flour on a large plate and dredge each shrimp cake in the flour, brushing off any excess. Heat a large sauté pan until just hot. Pour equal amounts of olive oil and clarified butter into the pan until it is approximately 1/2 inch deep. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, or until very hot. Carefully add the shrimp cakes to the pan and sauté for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Carefully turn the cakes over and cook for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove the cakes from the pan and drain on paper towels.

    Spoon a mound of the salsa in the center of each plate and lean 2 shrimp cakes against the salsa, opposite each other. Place a sprig of chervil in the center of the salsa.
