This is what I have come up with for the challenge
These are pictures of shells that I have collected over the years, they have all got different textures.
As a wheat intolerant I am always trying out new ideas, it is not easy in Tenerife to get wheat free flour, so I mainly use rice flour, maize flour or ground porridge oats into flour.
This is my take on turkey escalopes.
1 cup of ground oats
2 teaspoons of ground seeds ( I use sunflower and pumpkin )
1 teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves
1 table spoon of Parmesan or more if you like
1. Mix oats, seeds, thyme and parmesan together in a flat dish
2. Mix egg in a flat dish
3. Take turkey escalopes ( thin pieces of turkey), and coat with corn flour, then dip in egg mixture then crumb mixture.
4. Put a knob of butter in a hot pan add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When hot add the escalopes not too many at a time or they will not be crispy.
5. They only take a few minutes each side, but only turn the once, so you do not disturb the coating.
I found this worked really well and tasted good, I think I will try it with other flavours like curry, and also experiment with different herbs.
You can use this coating for fish, scotch eggs, chicken in fact any time you need a crumb coating.
