Mozzarella, Grilled Grapes, and Basil

Fresh mozzarella pairs with marinated grilled grapes.



This recipe is based on a recipe by Ottolenghi in Simple.

Ingredients

  • 11 1/4 oz/320g seedless red grapes
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 1/2 tsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • – Toasted and lightly crushed
  • Flaked sea salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 3 large balls of burrata or buffalo mozzarella
  • 6 small purple or green basil sprigs

Directions

  1. Marinate the grapes with the vinegar (the original recipe had sherry and I used balsamic and white wine), oil, garlic, sugar, 1 tsp of the fennel seeds, flaked salt, and plenty of pepper. Mix well and allow to rest for at least 1 hour and up to 1 day. Do not throw away marinade, it is used in serving.
  2. Grill grape skewers over high heat for 90 seconds per side.
  3. Using half a ball of mozzarella, top with marinade, sprinkle with remaining fennel seeds, serve with grapes and basil.
