¼ bunch basil leaves, picked & washed

¼ bunch mint leaves, picked & washed

¼ bunch parsley leaves, picked & washed

1 tablespoon tiny salted capers, rinsed in cold water, drained

1 tablespoon freshly grated parmesan cheese

¼bunch watercress, picked & washed

80g Frozen baby peas thawed

2 teaspoons Cobram Estate Chilli Oil

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

4 tablespoons Cobram Estate Classic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Freshly milled black pepper to taste & a generous pinch of sea salt

METHOD

FOR THE PORK 

Use a meat tenderizer to flatten each pork cutlet (meat to be no more than 10mm thick)

Beat the eggs & milk together with a pinch of salt & pepper

Mix the crumbs with the lemon zest, parsley & parmesan, add a pinch of salt & a pepper.

Lightly dust the cutlets in the flour, then coat them with the egg, and with the crumbs, taking care to press the crumbs on firmly.

Place the crumbed cutlets on a tray in the fridge until you are ready to cook them.

Add the oil & heat until a few crumbs sizzle when dropped in. Add the butter & as it is melting add the cotolettas & cook until golden brown, for about 3-4 minutes. Carefully turn them over & give them another 3-4 minutes, until they are golden brown.

Remove them from the pan & place them on an oven proof tray lined with absorbent kitchen paper in a low oven. At this stage you can toss together the coleslaw & divide it up onto the 4 plates.

Paint a stripe of Dijon mustard across the plate.

Serve the cotolettas next to the coleslaw & garnish with the lemon wedges

FOR THE ITALIAN COLESLAW

Place all the prepared vegetables, herbs & cheese in a large bowl & toss together.

Add the oils, lemon juice, salt & pepper & toss again.

Taste & adjust the seasoning if necessary.

Divide between 4 large plates by piling up the ingredients high, making sure you get all the small pieces that fall to the bottom of the bowl!
