In salty and sweet recipes, eggs have a lot of potential! Rich in protein and omega, they act on the texture and flavor of our best dishes. And we love it. The problem? Some recipes, such as coconut rock or pavlova, only require egg whites ... For you, we have come up with delicious recipes based on egg yolk only !
Yellows from starter to dessert
The interest, when there are only yellow? It is that they can be used both in salty and sweet recipes. Cocotte style, in a half avocado, as an entry or raw, to sublimate carbonara pasta or steak tartare, make a mayonnaise , etc. On the salty side, the egg brings a melting edge to our recipes and boosts protein intake. For dessert ? Easy, we make a custard or we give softness to our chocolate fondant, and a perfect texture to the flan and its variations.
Can we eat a raw egg?
Because before putting it on his steak, in his bimbimbap or mixing it in his smoothie or tiramisu, the question arises. Indeed, eggs can carry bacteria such as salmonella: they are germs sometimes present on the shell and which can contaminate, in some cases, the interior. Precautions to take?
- Only choose extra-fresh eggs in the preparations where they are raw.
- Eliminate the egg as soon as you have a doubt. If the shell is cracked or dirty, it is better not to take a risk and throw the egg in question.
- Think fresh, to keep the egg first, but also the preparations containing the raw egg once they are finished and before serving them.
- Finally, it is better to avoid any contact between food and shell: it zaps the presentation of laying a half-shell, containing yellow, directly on his tartare !
