Antipasti of mozzarella,chilli,and lemon crostini
I was already in LOVE with Jamie Oliver the, and then I made this recipe for dinner and I LOVE him even more. I apologise I do not have a photo to post, it was a beautiful dish, but I killed my camera battery and it is charging.
antipasti of mozzarella, chili, and lemon crostini
starter | serves 4
Heat a griddle pan until it’s really smoking hot, then griddle each slice of ciabatta for a couple of minutes on each side until they are nicely charred.
Cut the garlic clove in half, rub each ciabatta slice with garlic and drizzle with a little olive oil. Tear the mozzarella evenly over the 8 crostini. Season well with salt and pepper, sprinkle over the sliced chilli and basil leaves and grate over the lemon zest. Finish with another drizzle of olive oil.
• 8 slices ciabatta bread
• 1 clove garlic
• extra virgin olive oil
• 2 balls of buffalo mozzarella
• Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper
• 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
• a small handful of fresh basil leaves
• 1 lemon for zesting
To turn this from a starter to a dinner I added bacon wrapped scallops! Yum
