January 20, 2021

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 5-6 minutes
To serve: 4

You will need
4 slices calves’ or lamb’s liver, ½-inch thick
seasoned flour
2 tablespoons oil
2 level tablespoons French mustard
1 level tablespoon finely chopped shallot or spring onion
2 level tablespoons finely chopped parsley
fresh white breadcrumbs
2 oz. melted butter
Garnish:
orange slices
watercress

Fry liver slices, coated with flour, in hot oil for 1 minute on each side. Remove. Mix mustard, shallot or spring onion and parsley, adding drop by drop enough of the frying oil to make a ‘creamy’ mixture. Spread liver slices on each side with mustard mixture and coat with breadcrumbs, pressing on firmly. Lay slices in grill pan, spoon melted butter over and brown under a hot grill for 1-2 minutes; turn, baste with remaining butter and brown other side. Garnish with orange slices and watercress.
