“Quenelle De Poisson” At Khema Restaurant, Phnom Penh.


What is it? [Via French Moments]
A quenelle (French pronunciation: [kə.nɛl]) are dumplings made of wheat (either wheat flour or semolina), butter, eggs, milk, water and, usually fish. The most famous quenelles are pike quenelles (“quenelles de brochet”) and are often served with Nantua sauce, referring to a city located to the north east of Lyon in the Ain Department. This sauce is composed of crayfish, celery, carrots and Cognac

If you are fond of French cuisine then this is a plate you absolutely have to try. It is a classic Lyonnaise dish that is usually served as a main course. Thanks to Khema Restaurant, you don’t have to go to Lyon to have it.

My Quenelle de Poisson was delicately cooked to perfection, beautifully presented and luscious to the last bite. It sure brought back beautiful memories of my time spent in Lyon: The Capital of French Gastronomy.
