Monkfish liver and lobster sausage โ€“ leek mille-feuille, spicy lobster sauce, aromatic herbs ๐Ÿ”ฅ

First steamed and then finished on the grill. The texture of the sausage was somewhat bouncy with a fantastic snap reminiscent of my favorite hot dog, Vienna Beef. This was a real pleasure to eat! ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‹
