Fennel fritters – Finocchi fritti

finocchi fennels

Una ricetta tipica del sud Italia, o meglio del cenone di natale siciliano!

Bollire dei finocchi tagliati a spicchi per 10 minuti in acqua e sale;

Scolarli;

Passarli in un composto di uova sbattute con grana, o parmiggiano, e un pizzico di sale;

Passarli nella mollica;

Friggere in 2 cm di olio di semi e/o oliva per pochi minuti finché non assumono un colore dorato.

[Per 2 finocchi utilizzare 2 o 3 uova circa.]

A recipe coming all the way from the South of Italy, from the Christmas night dinners in Sicily.

Boil some fennels, each one cut in 4 pieces;

Drain them and then soak them in a mixture of egg, parmesan or grana cheese and a sprinkle of salt;

Then cover each one with breadcrumbs;

Fry them in a pan with 1 or 2 cm of sunflower or olive oil.

[for 2 fennels use around 2 or 3 eggs]
