Pork and Lemon Meatballs

Contributed by: Diana Griffiths of Salamander Cookshop Blog

Ingredients:

  • 500g lean minced pork
  • 50g fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 50g freshly grated Parmesan
  • Finely grated zest of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • Handful of chopped, fresh parsley
  • Approx 4 tablespoons of oil for frying

Directions:

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.
