I know, I know. We are all freezing here in the South. Even better reason to share this effortless and delicious recipe of Summer Fillet. Summer lingers only a few months away, already gearing itself up for endless days of blissful heat and braais at the pool. Aren’t I the positive posy?
So a few years ago, I had a meal at an Italian restaurant that was called Summer Fillet. It consisted of medium rare fillet strips, on crispy sauteed potatoes, with fresh rocket, cherry tomatoes and a balsamic reduction. All combinations that work perfectly together. This here is my version of that lovely fresh and seasonal meal.
I replaced my potatoes with butternut slices and I also roasted my cherry tomatoes as I wanted my dish served hot. Topped with tender fillet strips and served with peppery rocket and balsamic vinegar, I slowly but surely remembered why I have loved it so much!
Psst.. have I mentioned that it is carb free?
Quick, no fuss, and super scrumptious – Summer Fillet has become a dinner staple in our house and is also perfect to have when entertaining a couple of friends over some good beer on a weekend. It is especially a good recipe to keep handy as soon as the warmer weather hits. Hurry up Summer!!
