Note

Tips

  • - I tasted this recipe both with winter and summer truffle. The summer truffle is cheaper than winter truffle. You have the best result with Tuber melanosporum (winter truffle) but this recipe is tasty with Tuber aestivum (summer truffle) too.
  • - How much black truffle to buy? I suggest you not to buy too little truffles: a medium-size truffle goes further then few little truffles. Remember that with 150g (5 1/3 ounces) of fresh truffle I made: an omelette for two people, this recipe, risotto with chicken, potatoes and truffles, carbonara pasta and roast rabbit. Plan different recipes in a week (holiday season is perfect) and buy at least 100g (3 1/2 ounces) of black truffle.
  • - You can make this recipe all year round.
  • - Choose frozen or fresh king prawns.

Menu planning

  • - What about a special fish menu with this dish?
    Starter: a fruit-flavoured cocktail to match to little pizzas, go on with grilled scallops.
    First course: choose between egg fettuccine with caviar or tagliatelle with smoked sturgeon.
    Second course: at this point serve this salad. The following dish could be baked salmon or grouper fillets with citrus fruit. Accompany the second course with a green salad. Choose a good white wine for all meal. Links to all recipes below!
    Dessert: Italian panettone :))

Healthy eating

  • - I suggest this dish for your special occasions. First of all for truffle cost. Then there is always to consider the richness in cholesterol of prawns.
  • - Fiber per serving: 2,7 grams.
