“Sauerkraut and dogfish
with juniper berries


  • Mashed potatoes
  • - ½ kg mushy potatoes
  • - 1 tablespoon cream
  • - 1 egg yolk
  • - nutmeg
  • Sauerkraut and dogfish
  • - 1 large white onion
  • - 1 large white onion
  • - 100g butter
  • - 500g fresh (so uncooked) sauerkraut,preferably in rough slices
  • - 1 coffee spoon juniper berries
  • - 6 bay leaves
  • - a bottle (75 cl) Deus Brut beer
  • - 1 kg skinned and filleted dogfish, cut in 8 fillets
  • - salt and pepper


Mashed potatoes: cook the potatoes, drain them and let the excess moist evaporate completely. Stir a tablespoon of cream through the egg yolk. Mash the potatoes with a masher. Stir in the egg yolk with the cream, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg and continue stirring until you have a creamy mash.
Sauerkraut and dogfish: cut the onion in fine slices. Peel the carrot, cut into fine slices. Fry the onion and carrot in a tablespoon of butter until soft. Add the sauerkraut, juniper berries and bay leaves. Add the beer until all ingredients are covered with it. Let it stew under a lid for about 5 minutes. (If the sauerkraut has been pre-cooked, the latter part can be omitted.)
Cover with the fillets of dogfish and stew, put a lid on the pan and stew once more for about 5 minutes. Serve the sauerkraut and fish in a large bowl.
Reduce the cooking liquid to half its volume. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the remaining butter. Pour this jus over the fish and sauerkraut and serve with the mashed potatoes.
Deus with dogfish
This is an obvious link: if you can prepare sauerkraut with champagne, then surely this must also be possible with Deus Brut. And, in all honesty, in the glass this fizzy beer tastes even better than its colleagues from Reims.
