this was so delicious! it’s a nigel slater recipe and i really loved the contrast of the courgette rosti with the rich creamy burrata, all made to taste fresh and delicious with a tomato, basil and lemon salsa. we had it for supper but i think it'd be a wonderful brunch dish.
burrata is most-easily described as pouches of mozzarella cheese, filled with cream – it’s a seasonal cheese and can be quiet difficult to track down as it quicjly loses its freshness, but if you can get it, it really is worth the effort. if not, a really nice buffalo mozzarella would also be delicious.
the salsa – basil and oil blitzed together and then mixed with diced tomatoes and lemon zest – was a variation on the recipe. my tomatoes were a bit bland so i dressed them with the basil and oil and used the lemon zest to add a bit more flavour. a little bit of black garlic would also have been nice, if they needed even more flavour.
