Batter the sausage with the tempura and fry it in hot oil.
In the centre of each plate, put a tear of applesauce. On one side, put an apple slice as a base, place the sausage on top and cover with another apple slice. On the other side, put some sausage pieces, assembled and pierced with a skewer. Serve with a slice of toasted bread.
Catalans do not find this meat and fruit combination strange, as our medieval cookbooks already included these mixtures! The Cullera de Boix restaurant chef, Xavier Matarrodona, prepares dishes inspired by this tradition, according to the basis of Catalan cuisine within their menus. The dish with two sausages and two apple textures is a contemporary and original version of a long-standing recipe. This filling dish is ideal to top the last days of cold weather.
