- 50 g butter

Vinaigrette with traditional mustard

Shell the langoustines and put the tails to one side.
Brown theheads, claws and shells well in a casserole dish and add the aromatic garnish; sweat the mixture. Deglaze with the Cognac and the white wine, reduce and then add water to cover. Bring to the boil and cook for 20 minutes. Strain and filter the mixture and reduce to glaze (equivalent of a glassful). Add the traditional mustard and the vinegars, emulsify the mixture with the walnut oil, and season to taste.
Wash the vegetables and peel the fennel, the carrot, the cucumber and the beetroot. Wash and sort the mixed salad. Slice the vegetables thinly with a mandolin, plunge them into chilled water for 5 minutes, drain them and mix them with the salad.
Sauté the langoustine tails in a very hot pan and then roll them in the mustard seed mixture.
Season the salad and arrange all the food harmoniously.
