Hot salvia fritta

Salvia Fritta, literally translated as fried sage leaves is a very easy to make traditional appetizer. The recipe of this dish originates in Tuscany, but is popualar all over the country.

Salvia Fritta includes medium sized sage leaves and a batter made of flour, mineral water or beer fizz, eggs, oil and salt. The washed and dried leaves are dipped into the batter and fried in olive oil on both sides until they obtain a golden colour. The excess of oil can be removed if placing the ready sage leaves on a paper towel. The Salvia Fritta is usually served hot and can be accompanied by Parmesan cheese, olives or/and roasted peppers. The dish is even more delicious when savoured with a glass of sparkling prosecco wine.
