Pan Roasted Persimmon With Fresh Mozzarella

Pan Roasted Persimmon With Fresh Mozzarella
Looking for a simple yet delicious hors d’oeuvre? Here is an idea –

What you need
2 persimmons washed and sliced into 1/2 inch discs to display the beautiful starry middle :)
About 10 slices of Fresh Mozzarella
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Juice of 1 orange
1 tsp soy sauce
pepper & a pinch of salt

Roast the persimmon in the oil
Add half the orange juice, the soy sauce
Allow to cook for a minute before removing from heat
Pepper and salt
Transfer to a serving plate
Add the sliced mozzarella to the pan and cook for just a minute
Drizzle the rest of the juice over it
Pepper and salt to taste
Serve chilled

TIP: Add a sprig of basil for added flavor and or as a decoration.
I placed the mozzarella over the persimmon to serve –Sadly I did not take a picture of it before it was served to guests!

  2. Never tried these with anything savoury before; what a lovely idea, thanks :) btw don't know why we call them sharon fruit; persimmons is a much nicer word!
