French Buttered Radishes with Herbed Salt

Radishes at their most soft and gentle

French Buttered Radishes with Herbed salt

Growing radishes must be the easiest thing under the sun. They don’t need a lot of attention, and suddenly, they are fully grown and fully flavoursome. Sliced thinly and salted is our favourite way to enjoy them, although they go into  salads and sandwiches too, and sometimes they go into a quick pickle to have with rice or other dishes.

Today, we are treating them French style, cooked in a little butter. This removes the heated tang from the little bulbs, leaving them soft and tender in texture and taste.

Buttered Radishes with Herbed Salt

French Buttered Radishes with Herbed Salt

1 bunch radishes, or 2 – 3 per person
herbed salt (see below if you don’t have any) or use sea salt

Melt the butter over a gentle heat. Slice the radishes quite thinly – a mandoline is good for this.

Gently fry the slices in the butter, for about 5 minutes, turning over 2 or 3 times. Remove from the butter with a pair of tongs or a slotted spoon.

Sprinkle the slices with herbed salt or sea salt and serve.

Herbed Salt

Take some sage leaves, thyme leaves, basil leaves and rosemary – about 1 Tblspn packed in total. Heat 1 cm oil in a small pan over medium-high heat. Add the herbs until crisp (1 – 2 minutes, being careful not to burn them) and strain through a heat-proof sieve. Place the herbs into a spice grinder with 20 -30g salt and grind – or use a mortar and pestle and pound until coarsely ground.
