Thiago Silva's Strawberry Shortcake
A Light and Summery Dessert
Catch is a globally-inspired seafood restaurant located in Manhattan. Offerings include a raw bar, hot entrees and delectable desserts.
For the shortcake:
Mix all dries in a stainless steal bowl, cut butter in cubes, add to dry ingredients. Add yogurt, milk, and heavy cream. Mix just until it comes together. Do not over mix. Roll dough out to about ¾ " thick. Cut round, brush with heavy cream, and sprinkle with sugar in the raw. Bake at 375 °F until golden brown.
For the mascarpone cream:
Whip yolks with sugar until frothy white, using a whisk. Add mascarpone, salt, and heavy cream. Whip until doubled in volume and has a medium stiff peak. Keep refrigerated.
Garnish with strawberries, lemon juice, salt and basil.
