Sunday is my friend Jacci’s 50th birthday. So at work today Sarah, Charlotte & I gave her some gifts. Work (via Charlotte) bought her, not the obligatory milestone work-gift of Champagne and Cake as she doesn’t drink and is currently dieting, but perfume and flowers. She was thrilled but a little embarrassed by the attention.
I popped into M & S before work as it didn’t seem right to give her cards and gifts without blowing out at least one candle so I checked the calories on their Sour Cherry & Pistachio cakes (which conveniently contained four – cakes not calories) and we gave her one of those.
As I had a hair appointment at nine tomorrow I was very well behaved and just cooked this tonight. No sign of bank holiday weekend alcohol (OK apart from the one in the pic) so far…
Make a slaw of finely sliced fennel, finely sliced red onion, chopped capers, chopped parsley, chopped dill and mayo, along with a good squeeze of lemon juice.
Bash a couple of turkey steaks and cut into two (to make four schnitzels).
Pat with cornflour, dip in egg and then in smashed cornflakes.
Cook for a couple of minutes each side in rapeseed oil and serve with the slaw in a toasted bread bun.
Here’s Bill Granger’s version – mine are (very) slightly different.
Using FENNEL, RED ONION, CAPERS, PARSLEY, DILL, MAYO, LEMON, TURKEY STEAKS, CORNFLOUR, EGG, CORNFLAKES and BREAD BUNS…
This was dinner…2nd May 2014.
