Ingredients

  •  optional: lemon 
  •  basil fresh
  •  basil fresh
  • fillet anchovy 
  • fillet anchovy 
  •  cherry tomatoes ripe halved
  • servings salt and pepper 

Equipment

  • bowl
  • baking sheet
  • oven
  • knife

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F / 215 C
  2. Remove the ends of the lemons & discard them (dont cut in to deep - you want to keep a closed bottom). Then cut the lemons in half crossways, giving you little lemon bowls.
  3. Using a small knife, remove the lemon flesh, leaving you with 4 hollow lemon rind bowls. (Again you dont want to break-into the rind)
  4. Cut a piece of mozzarella to fit inside, then lay a basil leaf, half an anchovy fillet and half a cherry tomato on top with a pinch of salt & pepper and a little drizzle of good olive oil. Put another slice of mozzarella on top - the lemon should now be filled up. Do the same to the rest of the lemon bowls.
  5. Place on a baking sheet & cook in a preheated oven for 10 - 15 minutes, until golden & bubbling.
  6. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. To eat: scoop the mozzarella out and eat with the bread to soak up any juices!
