Sicilian coating is easy to make. But still one should pay attention to some details
. Don't grate the bread to fine. It is nice when it has some texture. A bit like the Japanese panko. Another apparent detail that makes a difference is the cheese. You need a taste but not to sharp cheese. The coating mustn't predominate
. Therefore Parmesan cheese is not the best option. Better use pecorino.One can add fresh mint. That gives the coating a touch of summer. It goes very well with swordfish.And what to say about polpette
. It is an essential part, the soul. Specially when making bread balls.The Sicilian coating is excellent when using a barbecue or grill to cook. The breading will avoid ingredients from drying out. And it will absorb dripping fat.
