A few months ago, I had this salad at a restaurant. It was so elegant and so eye pleasing, let alone the taste of deep fried goat cheese medallions. I knew instantly I had to make it at home. Goat cheese is one of the cheeses I always have in my fridge. I absolutely love to have goat cheese smeared on my toast with little bit of salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Making the medallions was not hard at all. I made sure to make more and popped them in the freezer for later use. Good thing I went away for a vacation right after I made these so they are still safe in the freezer, waiting to be enjoyed.
Here’s how I made it.
“Fried” Goat Cheese Medallions with Spring Greens
1 block of goat cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 cup cold milk
1 egg, whisked
¼ cup oil
Slice goat cheese medallions with a sharp knife. I find it very easy with the dental floss.
Coat the medallions with bread crumbs(salted and peppered), then dip in milk, again in bread crumbs, then in egg and finish with coating with more bread crumbs.
Freeze the medallions for about 30 minutes or so.
Heat oil in a shallow skillet.
Lay the medallions flat on hot oil, shallow fry until golden brown on both sides.
Add more oil if required.
Serve atop your favourite salad.
