Ingredients
  • Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons minced shallots
  • 2 teaspoons minced parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoons small whole or chopped large capers
  • Cheese:
  • 1/2 pound fairly mild melting cheese, such as Spanish Tetilla, Mahon, or goat cheese 1/2-inch thick
  • Flour, for dusting
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten with 2 teaspoons water
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Oil, for frying
Directions

In a cup combine the dressing ingredients. Dust the cheese pieces with flour, dip in the egg, then in the crumbs. (May be prepared ahead.) In a skillet heat the oil at least 1/2-inch deep to about 380 degrees F and fry the cheese quickly until golden on both sides. Or, better use a deep-fryer. Drain. Sprinkle the dressing over the cheese and serve immediately.
