Recipe: SCAMORZA ALLA GRIGLIA (Grilled smoked mozzarella)
- 4 scamorza, or smoked mozzarella, 8 to 12 ounces each, cut in half
- 1/4 cup best quality sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 cup olio piccante
- 1 bunch fresh marjoram
Preheat the grill and oil it with an oil-soaked towel. If you have no grill, a nonstick saute pan will work in this case. Place the pieces of scamorza cut side down on the coolest part of the grill and cook untill dark golden brown skin forms, 5 to 6 minutes. Gently turn and repeat on the rounded side.
Remove to a platter and sprinkle each with a few shreds of sun-dried tomato, drizzle with a bit of spicy oil, and place the bunch of marjoram in the center of the plate, so guests can pinch a little onto their portions
