Ricotta Fritta (Fried Ricotta)

When I cook with ricotta I always buy the large round pieces available from delis as it is a firmer ricotta than that from the smaller tubs. If you can only buy the smaller tubs, place the ricotta in a colander over night to drain as much liquid as possible.Demonstrated at the 2011 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.

Ingredients

  • 300g fresh ricotta

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • Salt

Method

  • 1.

    Cut the ricotta into small, flat, pieces.

  • 2.

    In a non-stick frying pan heat the oil over a moderate heat.

  • 3.

    When hot dip the ricotta into the beaten eggs and place in the frying pan. Repeat until the frying pan is full.

  • 4.

    Sprinkle the ricotta pieces with a little salt and cook for about 2 minutes or until golden. Flip the pieces over, salt and cook until golden.

  • 5.

    Place cooked pieces on a plate covered with absorbent paper.

  • 6.

    Serve as part of antipasto, as a side dish, or it is nice in a sandwich.
