I can’t get enough of wild garlic this year and trying out new ways to cook it has become a bit of an obsession! So far, I’ve tried this crust baked on salmon fillets and grilled on lamb chops, but why not try it perched on a chicken breast, stuffed & baked in a large field mushroom or thickly spread under a layer of melted cheese on toast? If you come up with any other glorious ways to use it, please leave a comment below so I can try it out!
Wild Garlic & Walnut Crust (for Fish, Lamb, Chicken or Mushroom)
- A good handful of wild garlic leaves, stems & flowers
- A handful of walnut halves
- A good slug of olive oil
- A handful of breadcrumbs
Blitz the first 3 ingredients in a food processor or chop really finely with a sharp knife, mixing the oil in when done.
Season well with salt & black pepper.
Cook your chop/breast/fillet under a grill or in a frying pan until almost done.
Spread generously with the garlic and walnut paste. Cover in breadcrumbs and grill for a few minutes until the breadcrumbs are golden brown and the meat/fish is fully cooked.
