6- Remove from heat and whisk in the olive oil.
7- Pass through a chinois into the bowl set over the ice water.
8- Let it cool at room temperature.
9- Transfer to a squeeze bottle and refrigerate.
Assemble and Serve
1- Cut the oranges in half.
2- Cut a circle of rind off the round end from each half to create a stable base.
3- Using a sharp pairing knife, carefully cut the orange flesh from the rind without cutting into the rind.
4- Cut the orange flesh in 4 pieces with two straight cuts across each other.
5- Place the rind on the plate, place the circle of rind you cut in step 2 inside the rind with the flat side up and finally place the 4 orange flesh pieces inside the rind.
6- Top with olive oil pudding and decorate the plate with five olive oil pudding dots of decreasing size around the orange.
