Tomato Mustard Coulis

  • Yield: 1 1/4 cups


  • 1/2 cup peeled, seeded, and chopped Italian plum tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons minced shallots
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons Creole or other whole-seed mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 cup Basic Chicken Stock
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 8 turns freshly ground black pepper


  • Combine the tomatoes, shallots, garlic, mustard, salt, white pepper, and stock in a nonreactive saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cook for 2 minutes, remove from the heat, and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
