Ingredients

olive oil for frying
12 whole fresh sage leaves
coarse salt for sprinkling

Directions

In a small skillet heat 1/8 inch oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and fry sage leaves, 1 at a time, about 3 seconds, until crisp, transferring with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle sage leaves with coarse salt.

Additional Information

They do wilt easily and you want to serve them as soon as you have them done. This is probably best for a small dinner party or a quiet evening with your partner. The smell is wonderful.

I originally planted the sage plants in my yard because they are very hardy and could stand the drought type soil here in California. I came across this recipe while searching through old cooking magazines for ideas. They were outstanding. They do have a strong flavor, and of course it's not for you if you don't care for "savory" type seasonings.
