  1. Have your monkfish fillets prepared beforehand at the fish shop
  2. Spread the slices of smoked bacon on a sheet of greaseproof paper, top with the burbot fillets, then roll and tie them up and let them dry on paper towel in the fridge for 12 hours
  3. Peel the salsify, cut each of the pieces so they are the same length, place the pieces in a sauté pan, add the lemon juice, butter, and white chicken stock, and cook covered over low heat.
  4. Cook until the salsify are tender and the juice becomes thick, then season with fleur de sel.
  5. Sweat the chopped onions in a frying pan over low heat, peel and dice the parsnips, chop the garlic, and add to the pan.
