Hen, Snail, Salsify

Hen Roulade
First thing I do is break down the hen saving a breast for the mousse filling. Bone out the leg and thigh removing all tendons and big chunks of fat. Pound out the leg and thigh so its equal thickness and set aside. Make a mousse out of the breast, I put salt, pepper,herbs, lemon zest, white wine shallot and garlic reduction and oven dried mushrooms but you can flavor what ever way you would like . Put the mousse in a piping bag, pipe a cylinder in the middle of the leg and thigh and roll it up in plastic very tight and tie the ends. Cryovac the roulades and sous vide at 155*F for about 15 to 20 minutes. Take out of the bag and unwrap from plastic and dry off with a paper towel. Season and sear the roulades and what is next is up to you.
