Ingredients

  • 1 cup pâté
  • 1 batch toast points 36 points
  • 1 orange
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • fresh parsley garnish

Instructions

To caramelize the oranges

  • Cut the orange into 9 thick slices, and then carefully cut away the peel.
  • Cut the slices into quarters and place on a heatproof surface.
  • Sprinkle the segments with brown sugar and caramelise using one of the following options.

BLOW TORCH

  • Melt the sugar carefully by moving the blow torch in circles over the sugar to avoid burning. Stop once a golden colour has been achieved.
  • Set aside to cool and allow the sugar to harden.

BROILER

  • Set the broiler to the highest setting and let it get very hot.
  • Place your tray of orange slices on a tray under the broiler keeping them as close as you can to the heat source. Broil for 60-90 seconds until the sugar has melted and is golden brown.
  • Remove from the broiler and allow to cool and the sugar to harden.

To assemble the dish

  • Spread a teaspoon or so of pâté on each of the toast points.
  • Add a segment of caramelized orange and a sprinkling of finely chopped parsley.
