That's the first speciality from my new region I tried and I'm proud to succeed it. It's like my new region had adopted me ;-) The recipe is a shallots sauc which goes perfectly with white fishes. This one is proposed on the website of Nantes tourism office by Mister Gueho from the restaurant L'atlantide awarded in 2005 by the "academie of Charles Monselet". This is the occasion to introduce you to the Charles Monselet Awards which proposes to consumers to award the best restaurants of Nantes and its region.
