Course: Side Dish  
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

2 Onion, peeled sliced 1/8
inch thick and separated
into rings
1 Tablespoon(s) Salt
1/4 Cup(s) Parsley, finely chopped and
preferably flat leaf
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Hot red pepper, crushed
1 Pound(s) Lamb's liver, trimmed and
cut into 1/2 inch cubes or
1 lb. calf's liver trimmed
and cubed
1/4 Cup(s) Raki, or ouzo or pernod or
any other anise flavored
1/4 Cup(s) Flour
3/4 Cup(s) Olive oil
Black pepper, freshly ground
2 Red Peppers, long Italian
type cut in half deribbed
seeded and cut lengthwise
into 1/8 inch wide strips
Place the onion rings in a sieve or colander, sprinkle with 1
tablespoon of the salt, and turn them about with a spoon to coat them
evenly. Let them rest at room temperature for 30 minutes, then rinse
under warm running water and squeeze them gently but completely dry.
In a large bowl, toss the onions, parsley and red pepper together
until well mixed. Set aside. Drop the liver into a bowl, pour in the
raki and stir together for a few seconds. Then pour off the raki.
Toss the liver and flour together in another bowl, place the liver in
a sieve and shake through all the excess flour. In a heavy 10 to 12
inch skillet, heat the oil over high heat until a light haze forms
above it. Add the liver and stir it about in the hot oil for 1 or 2
minutes, or until the cubes are lightly browned. Stir in the remaining
1/4 teaspoon of salt and a few grindings of pepper. With a slotted
spoon, transfer the liver to paper towels to drain. Mound the liver in
the center of a heated platter, arrange the onion-ring mixture and red
pepper strips around it and serve at once. From Gemini's MASSIVE
