Mozzarella grilled between lemon leaves
Sunday 17 July 2011
I love to use lemon leaves in everything from slow-cooked dishes to marinades. Their clean, citrus flavour gives a fragrant note to dishes that is complex yet at the same time completely simple.
8 lemon leaves
25ml/1fl oz extra-virgin olive oil
2 very fresh buffalo mozzarella, torn in half
8 toothpicks or little twigs to secure the lemon leaves
A pinch of sea salt
A few grindings of black pepper
Lay four citrus leaves on your work surface, place the mozzarella in the centre of each leaf and season.
Drizzle with just a little olive oil. Lay a leaf on top of each and secure both ends with a twig (or toothpick).
Lay on the barbecue and grill for around 30 seconds. Turn gently and grill for another 30 seconds on the other side.
Season to taste and serve.
