  1. To make the marinated shallots, mix the shallots, sugar and vinegar and leave to steep for at least 45-minutes. Drain before serving.
  2. To prepare the egg, separate the egg white from the egg yolk. Push each component separately through a sieve to form a fine paste.
  3. Cut the lemon in half and wrap each half in muslin; secure with string.

To serve:

  1. Place the Royal fillet on a serving board and surround the fillet with small piles of each garnish – marinated shallots, egg, diced gherkins, capers, chives and lemon halves.
  2. Slice the Royal Fillet into 1cm pieces and top with each garnish separately, or with a mixture of two or more…
  3. Wash down with the chilled Champagne!
