- Prep time: 10 minutes
- Cook time: 10 minutes
- Servings: 10
- 2 large beaten eggs
- 2/3 cup finely chopped pecans
- 1/3 cup panko
- 2 (7.7 oz) rounds well chilled brie cheese
- for frying vegetable oil
- 1/3 cup raspberry preserves
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 splash rice wine vinegar
- 1 pinch red pepper flakes
In a large skillet over medium heat, add oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches and heat to 350 °F.
In a shallow bowl, add the eggs. In a shallow plate, combine the pecans and panko. Slice 1 cheese round into 8 equal wedges. Dip each wedge into the egg, turning to coat. Dip each wedge into the crumb mixture, pressing to adhere.
Fry the wedges, a few at a time, in the hot oil, turning quickly to cook until golden on all sides, about 1 minute. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with Raspberry Sauce.
In a small bowl, combine the raspberry preserves, zest, rice wine vinegar and red pepper flakes.
