Chef Carlo Mirarchi of Roberta’s, the new hotspot in Montauk, offers “summer in a bowl” with this simple recipe for Sungold tomatoes.
Sungold Tomatoes from Carlo Mirarchi of Roberta’s
2 punnet baskets Sungold tomatoes
Maldon salt to taste
Extra-virgin olive oil for searing
2 teaspoons (10 grams) raw cream
Leaves of 1 sprig opal basil
Leaves of 1 sprig lemon basil
Freshly cracked black pepper to taste
Juice half of the Sungold tomatoes and season the juice with a little salt. Go easy with the salt — the juice is delicious on its own and you don’t want to overshadow the flavor.
Let some Sungold tomatoes come up to room temperature, and cook very briefly in a warmed skillet.
Try to just warm the tomatoes but make sure the skin stays intact.
Put the tomato juice in a bowl and place the seared tomatoes on top.
Add drops of cream around the tomatoes.
Garnish with more Maldon salt, both basils, and cracked black pepper.
