Chief lettuce-herb sauce

Pluck the spinach leaves and parsley from the stems. Boil the leaves in salted water for about three minutes, rinse in cold water and drain in a sieve. Squeeze out the excess water with your hands and chop the spinach a little bit. Rinse the lettuce and cut it into thin strips.

Heat the whipping cream, blend the spinach and butter with the lettuce, chopped herbs and almond kernels in a hand mixer. Pour into a small saucepan, heat gently, stir in the brown butter and season with salt, orange and lemon zest, a little juice of a lemon, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.

Roasted small potatoes Rinse the potatoes, soften in salted water with caraway seeds, drain in a sieve, cool and cut in half. Fry them in a frying pan in oil until golden brown, add a little bit of butter and season with cumin and chili salt.

Divide the chopped lettuce and herb sauce evenly on plates, put the huchen on top and place the potatoes all around. You can garnish the plates with some marinated lettuce leaves.
