How to Make Landmarc's Smoked Mozzarella & Ricotta Fritters

Hi, I'm Marc Murphy, chef of Landmarc. Today we're going to be showing you how to make smoked mozzarella and ricotta fritters.

Instructions

  • : This recipe involves very hot cooking oil, so be careful and never leave the oil unattended.
  • Step 1: Mix ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, milk & eggs In a large bowl, mix ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, milk, and eggs until all the ingredients are well blended.
  • Step 2: Mix in salt & pepper, flour & baking powder Mix in salt and pepper, flour, and baking powder to the wet ingredients. Set aside.
  • Step 3: Heat oil to 350 degrees In a heavy pot, heat 2 quarts canola oil to 350 degrees, keeping a close watch on the temperature with a candy thermometer.
  • TIP: Start heating the oil 15-20 minutes early.
  • Step 4: Spoon batter into oil Once the oil reaches 350 degrees, or slightly over, carefully spoon the batter into the hot oil.
  • TIP: To avoid, or at least minimize, hot oil splashes and burns, make sure to hold the batter spoon as close as possible to the surface.
  • Step 5: Cook 8-10 minutes Cook for 2-3 minutes, depending on the size of the fritters, until they're a dark golden brown.
  • Step 6: Remove fritters & let cool Remove fritters from oil, place on paper towel, and let cool for 4-5 minutes.
  • FACT: This recipe is very versatile -- have fun experimenting with different ingredients such as shredded zucchini or different types of cheeses.
