Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozLean minced pork
1 3/4 oz 49gWhite breadcrumbs
1 3/4 oz 49gFreshly grated parmesan cheese
  Finely grated zest of one lemon
1 tablespoon 15mlLemon juice
1   Egg
  Handful of chopped, fresh parsley
4 tablespoons 60mlOil for frying

Recipe Instructions

Put all the ingredients except the oil into a food processor and whizz to make a fine paste. If the mixture seems too dry add a little extra lemon juice. Put in the fridge for 5 minutes to rest.

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Roll the mixture into small balls about 4cm in diameter, flatten them slightly and then fry them in the hot oil until golden brown on both sides (takes about 15 minutes).

They are delicious served with spaghetti and an easy tomato sauce. Make the tomato sauce by frying half a small onion (chopped) in one tablespoon of olive oil and then adding a 400g can of tomatoes. Season and cook for 10 minutes in order that it thickens. You can also add a few torn basil leaves to the sauce if you wish. Alternatively serve with new potatoes and a salad.
