Deep fried sweetbread with chipotle onion, this recipe is simple. Before you plan on attempting this recipe, it is best to soak the sweetbread in milk for a day. Make parsnip puree by boiling parsnip in milk and cream until it is soft. Put the parsnip in a robot coupe or a blender, once it is formed a fine puree add salt and pepper and 1tsp honey, wasabi paste (according to taste) to the puree and beat it again. Reserve few fresh parsnips for chips. (Here instead of parsnip chips i have used pancetta). Place peeled chipotle onion with top and bottom trimmed on a sauté pan. Pour ½ cup of red wine and two teaspoon honey, salt and pepper bring it up to a boil, reduce heat and let the onions cook in the remaining liquid, let the liquid coat and cook the onion evenly. Reserve until ready for service. Make a spicy vinaigrette dressing for the sauce, (1 Jalapeño pepper chopped, 1/4 cup white wine vinaigrette, basil infused oil, chopped scallion, salt & pepper).Take the sweetbread that has soaked in milk and roll over seasoned flour (flour,salt,pepper,grated nutmeg, chopped parsley and thyme). Once it is evenly coated, put it in the deep fryer at 350*F. Once you get a even brown color, remove from oil and place on a paper napkin (to absorb the excess oil). Take the parsnip chips and coat with the seasoned flour and fry until golden brown. For presentation place the parsnip puree in the centre of the plate place one of the chipotle onions, above the onion place one sweetbread and place the parsnip chips and the sweetbread again and garnish with petite blood beet leaves. Pour the vinaigrette dressing sauce around.
