Four original and delicious oceanic rendez-vous are conveyed.
« To appreciate a fine fish is to respect its personality, to know how to cook it to reveal its individual flavour. This year, we are honouring produces, some considered « noble », some more modest, but that have in common their exceptional quality. We have paired them in surprising duos, playing with flavour, texture and preparation contrasts. These four beautiful and delicious pairings are described in this issue ». Alain Ducasse
Noirmoutier line-caught sea bass & Guilvinec sardine
Sea bass, the line-caught, tapered and nervous carnivore mellows in the plate next to the sardine, its favourite prey. The pronounced taste of the sardine, oilrich fish, brings character to the delicate and melting flesh of the sea bass, both at the best of their season.
Brittany lobster from Riec-sur-Belon & live shrimp from Quiberon
Under its Samurai-like appearance, the lobster hides an exquisite flesh and juice of intense aromatic power. its imposing exterior does not frighten the live bouquet of brittany shrimp that only turns red after cooking. Straight out of the tanks, and very simply prepared, they express all their natural flavours.
Line-caught turbot from Audierne & red mullet from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie
Appreciated by connaisseurs for being elegant and refined, the imposing turbot creates a surprising and delicious duo with the strong and characteristic iodine scent of the small mullet.
Scallops from Port-en-Bessin & bouchot Mussels from Mont Saint-Michel
Queen of the fish markets in port-en-bessin, the majestic scallop and her silky and slightly sweet flesh arrive on the Normandy coast in little fishing boats. here, they meet with smooth and fleshy mussels, grown on a bouchot, which preserve their taste and nutritional qualities.

July’s marine encounters by Rech are an ode to summer, bursting with freshness and seasonality. The seaside is not far, thanks to the vibrant duo created by chef Damien Leroux: Chilled costal blue lobster from Riec-sur-Belon & imperial shrimps from Marennes Oléron. Magnificent produce paired with two other seasonal favourites: tomato and basil.
On one side of the plate, the lobster is poached and chilled, lightly marinated in olive oil and lemon, accompanied by heirloom tomatoes grown by Christophe Latour – picked the day before and delivered extra fresh to Rech – and basil...
… On the other side, the shrimp are prepared in a tartare, seasoned with virgin olive oil and accompanied by lobster jelly and tomato water …
The result: a dish bursting with elegance, freshness, colours and flavours for a lunch on the go or to enjoy as a starter for two.
