Coconut and Yuzu entremets … .a recipe with a fantastic Japanese citrus: the Yuzu, which tastes of lime, grapefruit and clementines ……
I was curious to try this fruit…you read about this almost everywhere…..
To dampen the sourness of this citrus, nothing more suitable than something very sweet: coconut.
So, this way the Coconut and Yuzu entremets is born.
A light dessert, fresh and sour thanks to the creamy Yuzu.
A gorgeous soft coconut biscuit lwith a stunning texture and a yuzu and lime sablée
In short, all the ingredients for a modern dessert: creamy, soft, crunchy, sweet and sour.
It would seem the perfect combination.

    Shape the dough into a ball and refrigerate for 8 hours.

    Then, roll the dough gently until you have an even 2-3 mm thickness and cut a six inches (16 cm) round disc.

    Refrigerate for about 2 hours.

    Heat fan oven at 325 F - 160°C.

    Place the round disc on a micro perforated baking sheet and micro perforated silpat.

    Place another micro perforated silpat on top and bake for 10 minutes.

    Remove the second silpat and bake for a further 6 minutes.

    Brush the surface with melted cocoa butter (optional), let completely cool and set aside.

    On a low heat, heat egg whites with a small amount of sugar until 125F - 50°C, stirring constantly.

    With an electric mixer, whip the egg white with sugar until foamy.

    Add the remaining sugar, shredded coconut, coconut milk and mix to combine.

    Pour the mixture into a six inches (16 cm) silicone mould, 3-4 mm thick and bake for 15 minutes.

    Letr completely cool the biscuit into the mould and set aside (then you will pour over the Yuzu custard).

To Assemble

  1. In a 7 inches pastry ring (18 cm) and 1.7 inches (4.5 cm) in high, lined with acetate strips and cling film, fill up the coconut mousse to half the mold.

    Chill for a while and place the frozen disc (coconut biscuit/Yuzu custard) with Yuzu custard downward and push a little.
