No-Fried Fish croquette with Siciliano sauce 魚コロッケ シチリアンソースがけ
To avoid meat & oil, but still wanting to be satisfied with what I eat, I decided to make fish croquette. No fry. And I experimented Siciliano pesto from Barilla to make the sauce, which turned out perfect match with this fish croquette.
I never tried Siciliano pesto until last week and always bought Genovese for safe-going. One night I found Siciliano at a grocery store and immediately grabbed it and tried it with penne pasta. That really was "Oh la la!" new discovery. The reason I went the sauce was I've got a new friend from Sicily in my German language class. New friends expand food variety,...right? This is fantastic.
It's an amazing combination of Ricotta cheese and walnuts. I'm sure I'll try all series of Barilla pesto haha! Now it's my turn to make her try Japanese products :) Tempura?

Japanese bread crumbs are the best! It's seriously unbeatable.
Crispy and slightly nicely smells wheat. You Da One
