Innovative fish lasagna, with orange and lavender

Difficulty: Medium
Portions: 4
Preparation: 50 min
Baking time: 20 minutes

I was inspired to create this recipe while reading the menu of a restaurant in Washington, but where I did not end up ordering this fish lasagna, flavored with orange and lavender. Back at home I found this recipe for it, later on, by pure curiosity; the scent of lavender adds a refined and subtle aroma and, to my surprise, the thin homemade egg lasagna noodles also had a really positive impact...


Lasagna noodles
* 1 egg
* 1 cup white wheat flour
* 2 tbsp water (or olive oil)
* salt (optional, to your taste)

* 1/2 lb. white fish fillets (cod, tilapia or sole)
* 1 cup milk
* 1 large tablespoon of infusion of lavender
* zest from one orange
* 2 large tbsp cornstarch
* 2 tbsp cream
* salt, pinch of nutmeg

Recipe for 4 portions


1) Mix flour and salt together; make a well in center of the pile of flour, stir in the egg by turning the flour into the center. Add olive oil or water. Knead until the dough is firm and smooth. Wrap the dough in cellophane and chill for half an hour or more.

2) Cook the fish fillets in the milk, simmering them 3 minutes. Remove fillets and set aside.

3) Put the lavender into a tea infuser ball and put it in the milk, off the stove, along with the orange zest while still warm. Let steep 5 minutes. Remove the tea infuser, but keep the orange zests in the pan.

4) Whisk in the sauce the cornstarch to thicken the mixture, mixing over low heat, stirring constantly. When cooked, add the cream and adjust seasoning with salt and nutmeg. Add the fish cut into bite-size pieces and reserve the sauce.

5) Get the dough from the refrigerator. Then spread it using a rolling pin (see advice above). It won't matter if the dough pieces are not regular or all the same, it is enough that they have the same thickness. Make them dry out in the open for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 450 °F.

6) Cook the pasta in boiling water for 2 minutes; drain.

7) In a greased up lasagna pan, put the lasagna together, alternating layers of lasagna and fish stuffing. Finish with a layer of lasagna covered with just a hint of sauce.

8) Bake this lasagna in the oven for 20 minutes, switching the setting to broil for the last 5 minutes.
