  4. Cook sous vide in a preheated water bath at 57 degrees for 25 minutes
  5. Peel the asparagus strips along their length and place in iced water
  6. Make a quick dressing by whisking together the olive oil, lime juice, liquid smoke and a pinch of salt
  7. Mix the roasted fennel seed into the mayonnaise
  8. To serve, dress the asparagus shavings with a little smoked lime vinaigrette and season with a little salt
  9. Plate the mayonnaise and add the asparagus. Arrange the cooked cheeks from the pouch

Chef’s Tip –

The cod cheeks like flavour, why not add harissa paste to add a little spice .
