This is a new dish at La Villa for 2018 – light, zesty and perfect as a starter on a warm summer’s day.
Ingredients (serves 4)
- One large, firm courgette
- 100 grams of Parmesan shavings
- 25 grams of pine nuts (toasted)
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Zest & juice of one large lemon
- Handful of rocket
- Good quality sea salt flakes
Have all of your ingredients to hand as this is one dish you need to make fresh & serve straight away.
Using a sharp knife, slice the courgette as thinly as possible (or, if you have one, use a mandolin). Arrange on your serving plate; a white plate is best to show off the colours.
Give a sprinkle of sea salt, a drizzle of olive oil & a squeeze of lemon juice. Scatter over a few rocket leaves, toasted pine nuts and Parmesan shavings – finish by grating the lemon zest on top and a final drizzle of olive oil.
Bon Appétit !
