Full of savory flavor, these Polenta Squares make a great addition to the dinner table or can be served as an appetizer. Baked and then lightly fried, the polenta squares have a buttery basil flavor and are crunchy on the outside while still maintaining their softness on the inside. This recipe provides instructions for making a creamy fish sauce to serve with the polenta squares, either on top or as a dipping sauce. Garnish with chopped basil and fresh parmesan.

Ingredients

  • 200 milliliters vegetable broth
  • 150 milliliters milk
  • 15 grams butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh basil (minced)
  • 75 grams polenta
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • 185 grams fish (canned bonito, in olive oil)
  • 1/3 onion (peeled and chopped)
  • 75 grams cream cheese
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • fresh basil (minced)
  • parmesan cheese (grated)

Directions

  1. In a saucepan heat the vegetable broth, milk, butter, basil, polenta, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and continue to cook on medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes while stirring. Pour into a baking pan and press down to flatten the surface. Let it cool.
  2. Once cool, unmold and cut into small squares.
  3. In a saucepan, heat olive oil and fry the polenta squares for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden. The texture should be crispy on the outside and soft in the inside.
  4. Pat the polenta squares with paper towel to remove the excess oil.
  5. Drain the fish and place in a bowl. Add the onion and cream cheese. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Season with a pinch of salt, black pepper, and basil.
  6. Pour the Bonito fish cream on the polenta squares. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.
