Burrata with green relish


"Burrata is a creamy fresh cow's milk cheese of stretched curd and cream inside a mozzarella skin," says Brigitte Hafner. "It goes really well with this fresh and fragrant relish. Serve it with toasted crusty bread drizzled with lots of extra-virgin olive oil."

You'll need

2 burrata (about 200gm each) To serve: crusty bread   Fragrant green relish 1 tbsp coriander seeds 2 tsp cumin seeds ¾ cup (loosely packed) coriander, coarsely chopped ½ cup (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped ½ long green chilli, finely chopped 2 tbsp coarsely chopped roasted skinned hazelnuts 1 garlic clove, crushed 125 ml (½ cup) extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve Juice of 1 lemon

Method

Add a few grinds of black pepper and sea salt to taste. Just before serving add lemon juice to taste and a dash more olive oil. Serve over the burrata with crusty bread.
