escargotbeignets.png

Ingredients (serves 6)
60 Burgundy escargots
250 grams (2
¼ cups) all-purpose wheat flour
2 eggs
2 egg whites
25 cl (1¼ cup) light ale
6 tbsp olive oil
fresh parsley, tarragon, chives, and
chervil (1 sprig of each)
salt and pepper

Preparation (30 minutes active time)
Mix all the herbs, 1 tbsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Drain the escargots, then let them marinate in this mixture for about one hour.
Mix the whole eggs, flour, and light ale, then season with the salt and pepper. Stir until the batter is homogeneous then set aside for about 20 minutes.
Whip the egg whites until stiff with a pinch of salt then incorporate delicately into the batter. Heat 5 Tbsp of olive oil in a fryer or a deep saucer pan. The oil is the right temperature when a small piece of bread crisps quickly in it. Pour half a dozen of the marinated escargots into the batter, then fry them in the pan. Take them out when they have turned nicely golden. Lay the beignets on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Keep warm in a low oven. Repeat with the rest of the escargots.
Serve the beignets on a tray with parsley and cocktail sticks or on top of a salad (you can use the same herb mixture to make the dressing). Excellent with a dry white wine from Burgundy!
