Ingredients list

Fried mozzarella

Tomato Carpaccio

  • 4 beef tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • basil to taste
  • balsamic vinegar to taste
  • olive oil extra virgin to taste
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


Tomato Carpaccio

  • Wash the tomatoes thoroughly and remove the stalk. Then cut one tomato at a time into thin slices and arrange them overlapping in a circle.
  • Peel the onion and place on top in fine rings.
  • Spread basil leaves on the tomatoes as desired. Drizzle the carpaccio with balsamic vinegar and olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Fried mozzarella

  • First cut the mozzarella balls into four roughly equal parts. Then place in a large sieve and drain well.
  • Then bread the mozzarella pieces. To do this, first thoroughly turn in a bowl of flour.
  • Whisk the eggs in a second bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well with the liquid cream. Turn the floured mozzarella pieces in it.
  • Finally, these are then dipped in breadcrumbs and breaded all around with it.
  • To obtain a thick and crispy breading, the last two steps are repeated. So turn again in the egg and coat again with breadcrumbs.
  • Now add enough sunflower oil to a large frying pan and heat. Fry the mozzarella pieces on all sides until golden brown. Then carefully remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain briefly on absorbent kitchen paper.
  • Finally, spread the hot mozzarella bites evenly over the carpaccio and serve immediately.
