This tasty pan-fry brings fresh inspiration to your midweek meals. It is a hearty dish that needs nothing more than some crusty bread to mop up the juices, but you could bulk it out with buttered couscous. If you’re cooking for vegetarians, replace the Parmesan with your favourite vegetarian hard cheese.
