Crispy Marrow fingers, Panko crumb, basil and black Pepper mayo dipI wanted to try and pimp up this classic British vegetable, instead of the typical recipes that are out there, most chefs normal recipes always involve stuffing and baking.
Marrows do not have the strongest and deepest of flavors but what they are good at is absorbing, the inside flesh is very sponge like, so perfect to infuse other taste and create your own recipe.
I've kept the basic of this recipe simple, meaning that once you have mastered the basic steps, introducing your own touches will be very easy and satisfying.
example; by adding dried seasoning mixes to the flour, smashed seeds or nuts to bread the crumbs or by simply changing the dip you really can turn this into one of your own specialties, I've even served them tomato ketchup for the little man and he loved them as a dunker.Creamed Aubergine dip, Garlic & Olive oilThis is a great way of your using your Aubergines, a hint of warmth but not too spicey & amazingly easy, will store in your fridge for 24hrs so you can get ahead.
