Roasted Bone Marrow

Recipe from: mlao77
Servings: 4 to 6, 8 to 12 bones

Ever since I saw a recent episode of Food Network's "The Best Thing I Ever Ate", I can't get roasted bone marrow out of my head. I ordered it at a restaurant in Toronto this Summer and I wasn't disappointed... now it was my chance to see if i could duplicate this sinfully good dish at home. Surprisingly, this is a very economical and easy recipe to prepare. Mmmmm.... bone marrow over toasted crostinis, with parsley salad and sea salt... definitely not for the faint-hearted. This is from the NYTimes.

8 to 12 beef bones with marrow, 3 inches long, 3 to 4 pounds total
1 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
2 shallots, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons capers
1½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
coarse sea salt
crusty bread, ¼ inch slices, toasted

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Put bones, cut side up, on foil-lined baking sheet or in ovenproof skillet. Cook until marrow is soft and has begun to separate from the bone, about 15 minutes. (Stop before marrow begins to drizzle out.).

Meanwhile, combine parsley, shallots and capers in small bowl. Just before bones are ready, whisk together olive oil and lemon juice and drizzle dressing over parsley mixture until leaves are just coated. Put roasted bones, parsley salad, salt and toast on a large plate. To serve, scoop out marrow, spread on toast, sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt and top with parsley salad.
