  1. Combine the above ingredients, except the bread crumbs and olive oil, in a bowl and form patties that are 1-inch thick and 4 inches in diameter. Lightly coat in semolina or fine bread crumbs and fry in butter or olive oil on medium heat for four minutes on each side. It is extremely important to take any liberties that you deem necessary or that will please your friends and family. We were serving ours with a ginger and beet puree and some beautiful watercress dressed in lemon oil. You may do as you please. A green salad and sweet corn salsa, French fries and green olive tartar, rose or beer.

Cook’s Note

You may add just about anything else that makes you happy. It should feel like it's going to stick together like a hamburger or meatloaf. If needed add another egg or a little more bread.
