Smoked Salmon and Pistachio 'Ferreros'
A recipe inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, these ricotta balls were inspired by one of my favourite Mediterranean dishes Labneh Makbus.
I have been fascintaed with vibrantly green California Pistachios of late. When I was testing recipes for the Amuse bouche series at Nature's Basket, I remembered the Pistachio Kehwa recipe I created last year. Pink and green being my favourite colour combination, I decided to capture it in an Amuse. It turned out fabulously as you can see...
Time taken: 20 minutes, Makes about 14 - 16 Ferreros
1 box ricotta
250 gms smoked salmon, flaked
1 clove garlic crushed to a paste
1/2 cup pistachio paste
Salt to taste 1/2 cup
Place Ricotta in a large bowl, add the smoked salmon, salt, crushed garlic and pistachio paste and mix well. What you should aim for is the consistency of cottage cheese. When you have this cover and refridgerate until required. Place pistachio flakes in a small saucer and flatten into a thin layer. Remove Ricotta mix from refrigerator, take about one tablespoon on the palm of your hand and shape into smooth, round balls, roll in the Pistachio flakes and arrange on a tray. Return to fridge and chill until firm.
