A night out in Middlesbrough wouldn't be complete without a take-out parmo! Middlesbrough is famous for the local take-away delicacy served up until the early hours of the morning.
A parmo is a variation on a Chicken Parmesan, invented in Middlesbrough! You can enjoy it in restaurants, as a take-away snack or at home with the recipe below!
Whereas Chicken Parmesan is a flattened slab of chicken, pan-fried while coated with breadcrumbs and then grilled with Parmesan cheese, a Parmo involves deep-frying the chicken in an egg and breadcrumb batter, then smothering it in Bechamel sauce, before finally grilling with cheese.
- Pork or chicken fillet - 1 egg - 1/2 cup breadcrumbs - Béchamel sauce - Parmesan cheese
1. Take the piece of flattened pork or chicken fillet, beat the eggs. 2. Dip fillet into the egg and then the breadcrumbs to coat, then deep fry, brown fillet on both sides. 3. Add béchamel sauce and parmesan cheese and place under the grill.
