  • When cool, mix pea puree with 100g of the Philadelphia, 5g of the butter and chopped mint. Season and put in the piping bag. Pipe the mint pea cream cheese on to cling film and roll it up tightly. Freeze until firm.
  • Remove the skin from the sole fillets and flatten the fish until nice and thin. Put frozen mint pea cream cheese in the middle of the fish and roll it up very tight with cling film. Place the fish in the fridge until it has firmed and set.
  • Mix the breadcrumb with the lemon and lime zests, cayenne pepper and chopped parsley. Season to taste.

Then add the fish stock and reduce again by half to two thirds. Add 40g of the Philadelphia and stir until melted. Remove from the heat, whisk the sauce with 85g of soft butter until well combined. Add back the cooked clams. Season to taste and keep warm.
