’Nduja and mozzarella ciabatta with garlic and thyme oil


Sometimes, the simplest things are the best. Here, it's all about 'nduja - the spicy spreadable Calabrian salami - and the best buffalo mozzarella you can find. 

You'll need

4 ciabatta rolls, halved 150 gm ’nduja (see note) 250 gm buffalo mozzarella, thickly sliced Pickled onions, to serve   Garlic and thyme oil 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil 2 garlic cloves, very thinly sliced 2 tsp thyme

Method

  • 01
  • For garlic and thyme oil, heat ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat until fragrant and garlic is light golden (2-3 minutes), then set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat a sandwich press. Drizzle cut sides of ciabatta with a little garlic and thyme oil and spread bases with ’nduja. Top with mozzarella slices, season with sea salt and sandwich with tops. Toast until mozzarella melts (3-4 minutes), then cut into pieces, drizzle with garlic and thyme oil, and serve hot with pickled onions.
