A crispy panko shell, concealing hot, melted brie, combined with a tart redcurrant or lingonberry jam makes fried brie a perfect starter or even a main course.
If you find that your brie is quite ripe and runny, even before frying, then place it into the freezer for 30 minutes before making the dish.
Lingonberry jam can also be used in place of redcurrant jelly. Anything which has a tart flavour goes very well with the full flavour of the brie.
To pad the dish out into a main meal, serve along with something like, as per the photo, a spinach salad, fresh steamed asparagus and pea shoots, with a twist of lemon and a simple olive oil and balsamic vinegar drizzle.
