Horseradish, known for its strong and sharp flavour, is one of the traditional spices in the Eastern and Mediterranean regions of Europe. Apart from being a standard accompaniment to beef and oyster, horseradish serves as a great complement to many ingredients. Via the Foodpairing Tool, we've combined it with potato and grey shrimp, a classic Belgian combination.
The traditional Belgian dish calls for mashed potatoes. However, we are doing it the Italian way this time round by making a potato risotto! The preparation method is similar to the traditional method of preparing a risotto, except that we are replacing rice with potatoes. Bresc Horseradish puree is then added to give a tinge of spiciness.
Hippo Tops, a spicy type of watercress that still grows wild in Europe and Asia, adds crunch and highlights the floral aromas in horseradish.
