CHOOSING THE RIGHT OLIVE OIL
Olive oil is good for a variety of cooking methods. It can be used for frying, baking, sautéing and marinating and not just for salad dressings or dips. Using olive oil for regular everyday dishes will make a difference in taste and aroma. Because of its anti-oxidant properties, it is very good for one’s health. Here are some quick ideas for using the oil:
FOR FRYING EGGS
Simply use MOLINERA POMACE OLIVE OIL in frying eggs for breakfast or for the eggs in your Arroz a la Cubana. you will notice the difference in the taste of the fried eggs.
FOR FRYING FISH
Brown slices of garlic in MOLINERA PURE OLIVE OIL then set aside. In the same oil, fry a whole fish (like lapu-lapu, sole, maya-maya) that has previously been seasoned with salt and pepper. Fry both sides until golden brown. Transfer fish to a plate then top with the browned garlic slices.
Any salad dressing will have that special flavor and aroma with MOLINERA EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL. Just whisk the oil with any of the CAPRI WINE VINEGARS (red, white or balsamic) and season with some salt and pepper. you may add some tuna chunks, onion slices, tomato slices, and some green or black olives to your salad greens.
FOR BREAD DIPPING
Pour MOLINERA EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL in a dipping bowl then add a few drops of CAPRI BALSAMIC VINEGAR, a dash of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve with toasted slices of French bread or ciabatta.
To serve bread as part of a meal, rub the cut side of fresh tomato, on a slice of bread, then drizzle with MOLINERA EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL on top. Sprinkle bread with some salt. These slices make a very good side dish for a stew or a soup.
