Veloute Sauce Recipe

Ingredients:
1 oz. of butter
3 tb spn plain flour
1 1/2 c. chicken, fish or veal stock
1 tb spn cream
Lemon juice to taste

Instructions:

Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, or until a thick paste has formed- be careful not to brown the mixture or it will color your sauce.

Whisk in the stock a little at a time to prevent the mixture becoming lumpy. Cook the sauce, whisking continuously, for 3-5 minutes- it should be quite thick and not have a floury taste.

Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice, adding a little at a time.  Finally, stir in the cream. Serve immediately, as this sauce will quickly thicken if left to stand. If necessary, add a little extra stock to thin it down.

Cajun Cornish Hen Recipe

Ingredients:
1 rock cornish hen, giblets removed
2 tbsp cajun seasoning blend
1/3 cup butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Thaw the chicken. Thoroughly rinse the bird under cold running water, and pat dry with paper towels.

Preheat the oven to 350F

Place the bird breast-side up on your cutting board. Pat the surface with the cajun seasoning, on both sides of the bird. Make sure all exposed skin is covered. Don’t worry about the cavity of the bird.

Melt the 1/3 cup of butter. Place the bird in a casserole dish, and slowly pour the butter over the top of the bird. If the seasoning washes off into the butter, that’s okay, just sprinkle a little extra over the uncovered parts of
the bird.

Place the bird in the oven, uncovered. Bake at 350F for 1 hr 20 mins, using the turkey baster to baste the bird with the butter about every 10-15 minutes. The surface of the bird should be crisp when done.

Serves 1
