  Cabbage marinated with crispy Speck

25 g Speck Alto Adige PGI
A knob of clarified butter
½ head of white cabbage
1 garlic clove
25 ml extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon of seasalt
Black pepper

50 g Speck Alto Adige PGI
A knob of clarified butter
1 head of white cabbage
2 garlic cloves
50 ml extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Half a teaspoon of seasalt
Black pepper

100 g Speck Alto Adige PGI
A knob of clarified butter
2 heads of white cabbage
4 garlic cloves
100 ml extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon of seasalt
Black pepper



Mix the extra virgin olive oil with the lemon juice, salt, pepper and lightly crushed garlic cloves. Wash the white cabbage and cut it into slices approximately 2 to 3 cm thick. Put it into a large reclosable bag, pour on the marinade and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Remove the cabbage slices from the bag and arrange them on a baking tray. Sprinkle them with the remaining marinade from the bag and bake at 200°C in a standard oven (180°C fan) for around 30 minutes until well cooked on the surface.

In the meantime, cut the Speck Alto Adige PGI into small cubes and brown in a frying pan with a knob of clarified butter until crispy.

Once the cabbage slices are cooked, serve them in a serving dish sprinkled with the crispy Speck Alto Adige PGI and chopped parsley.
