Last night as we were tucking into dinner my lovely boyfreind said outloud “Sometimes I worry that everyone will find out how delicious liver is and it will get really expensive.” Probably the reason I love him is I knew exactly what he meant and felt the same way. A good piece of liver is like fillet steak, fine textured tasty and it looks beautiful.
I like to have it simply fried ( though we tried BBQ a few months back and that was heavenly too) Though liver and bacon is classic British cooking, I love it with chorizo the salty spiceness it’s a Spanish touch especially if you add some sherry to degalze the pan.
I like it with some peppery salad leaves rocket or watercress and crusty bread.
