Grilled mortadella with pickled onions


You'll need

2 Spanish onions, roots intact, cut into wedges 100 ml red wine vinegar 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 2 rosemary sprigs 2 fresh bay leaves 20 thin slices mortadella To serve: baguette, thickly sliced

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Combine onions, vinegar, oil and herbs in a bowl, being careful not to break up onion. Season to taste and scatter in a single layer in a roasting pan. Add 100ml water, cover with baking paper then foil, and roast, turning occasionally, until tender (1-1½ hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat a char-grill pan over high heat. Grill mortadella in batches, turning once, until golden (1-2 minutes each side). Serve hot with roast onions and baguette slices.
This recipe is from the June 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
