Ibiza restaurants: Zucchini Flowers at El Olivo Mio
Beautiful and iconic Ibiza restaurant El Olivo Mio is renowned for its creative Mediterranean menu and its quest for perfection in terms of ingredients and techniques. 2017 has seen some new dishes added to the menu, with one of the standout starters being the light and crispy Zucchini Flowers.
Stuffed with fresh ricotta and strong Parmesan, with a dash of Pesto Trapanese (a Sicilian sauce made from almonds and fresh tomatoes – ingredients that are in abundance here in Ibiza), the delicate flowers are then lightly battered and fried until they reach the perfect crunchy consistency. Crispy on the outside, rich, gooey and delicious on the inside, for every diner who has had the opportunity to try these little wonders, it has been love at first bite.
