Le Cordon Bleu Intermediate: Chotten de Lotte au Lard et Artichauts Braisés/Monkfish wrapped in bacon with braised artichokes

This dish went more smoothly than expected – it seemed a lot more complicated than it actually was because we had 2 recipes.  Actually, I just like to think that I’m getting better and better at organizing my time.

This went fairly well.  In terms of taste, everything was good – the jus was good (a “true” jus done with just water!).  The broccoli was a little bit overcooked, and the monkfish was “à la limite.”  Seasoning was good, and personally I really liked this dish (aside from how annoying it is to skin monkfish and how smelly it is).

I also messed up the plating a bit with the artichokes, just kinda got lazy.  Should’ve stacked them up for more volume.
