- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 ounces sugar
- 1 sheet gelatin, softened in cold water
- 2 ounces coconut milk (recommended: Coco Lopez)
- 1 fresh Key lime, juiced
- 1 tablespoon grenadine
- 4 sheets rice leaves*
- Vegetable oil
- Powdered sugar
- Raspberry Coulis, recipe follows
- Lime twists, for garnish
- * Rice leaves are usually 6 to 8-inch squares and can be found at specialty Asian markets.
Cut each rice leaf sheet into 3 pieces. In a large heavy-bottomed skillet, pour enough oil so that the rice leaves will float. Heat over medium-high heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 350 degrees F. Deep-fry rice leaves until crisp (about 1 minute.) Drain on paper towels and dust with powdered sugar while still warm.
Start with 1 scoop of mousse in center of cold plate. Top with 1 fried rice leaf. Add another scoop of mousse and top with another rice leaf. Top with a third scoop of mousse and final rice leaf. Drizzle raspberry coulis over and around the stack. Garnish with a lime twist.
