  • ½ cup double cream/ half-and-half
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon marjoram or oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 large or 1,5 medium zucchini
  • ¼ tbsp butter
Let's get started!
  1. Slice the onion and crush the garlic.
  2. Remove the sinew and fat from the liver, cut them into little pieces, wash them, then pat them dry with kitchen paper.
  3. In a large skillet heat two tablespoons oil or fat, when it's hot add the sliced onion. Sauté the onion on medium heat, until is tender. Add the crushed garlic and liver pieces.
  4. Cook the liver, stirring them occasionally for 6-7 minutes. Season them with paprika, marjoram, salt and pepper to taste, stir well, cover the skillet with a lid and cook for another 5-6 minutes (add a little water if necessary).
  5. Cut in half a piece of liver, if there's no fluid coming out of it, it means it's ready. Don't overcook the liver, it may become tough.
  6. Stir in the cream and bring it to boil, then remove the skillet from heat.
  7. While the liver is cooking, prepare the zucchini noodles using a Spiralizer or vegetable peeler.
  8. Heat a little butter in a skillet, when it's hot add the noodles, Sauté them for 1-2 minutes, season with salt and remove from heat, otherwise they become soggy.
  9. Serve the creamy liver with the zucchini noodles.
