  • 35 g Feta cream (see below)
  • Pepper salt


  • 100 g Feta
  • 100 g Ricotta
  • 100 g Greek yogurt 10% fat
  • Pepper, salt, pinch of sugar


  • 175 g Kritharaki (small rice-shaped noodles)
  • 1,5 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 size Red peppers
  • 100 g Paprika pulp (Ajvar)
  • 3 tbsp Ketchup
  • Salt
  • 0,5 tbsp Sugar
  • 10 Pcs. Black olives

Bean salad:

  • 250 g Green beans (chopped) TK
  • 1 small Red Onion
  • 65 g Bacon cubes
  • 3,5 tbsp Sunflower oil
  • 2,5 tbsp Balsamic crema bianco
  • 0,5 tsp Summer Savory
  • Pepper salt



  • Puree all ingredients with a hand blender until creamy and season with pepper, salt and sugar. Chill until ready to use.


  • Cut the length of the lamb salmon deep in the middle, but not completely, unfold, cover with cling film and plate a little more. Mix 35 g pesto and 35 g of the feta cream, brush each meat platter with it, then roll it up from one narrow side and fix the end with a roulade needle or a toothpick. Keep refrigerated until use.

Preparation of bean salad:

  • Bring well-salted water to a boil in a saucepan. Add the frozen beans, bring to the boil again and then simmer for only 1 minute. Try a bean, it should be with a slight bite. Then drain immediately, briefly pour in a little ice water, drain again after approx. 3 minutes, drain and pour into a bowl. Peel the onion and dice it. Also dice the bacon - if it is still too coarse. Have everything ready.


  • Halve the peppers lengthways, remove the core and cut the halves crosswise into thin strips. Slice olives. Bring plenty of well-salted water to the boil in a larger saucepan, sprinkle in the pasta and cook until bubbling for 5 - 8 minutes. Test once after 5 minutes. When they are done, but - like the beans - still have a light bite, drain, return to the saucepan and mix immediately with the oil and pepper strips. Then let it rest next to the stove until it is finished.


  • Heat 4 tablespoons of sunflower oil and one tablespoon of butter in a pan. Pepper and salt the roulades all around and fry them all over. Then reduce the heat halfway, prick a meat thermometer right into the center of a roulade and continue to fry them slowly until they have reached a core temperature of 60 and a maximum of 62 °. Always scoop some frying fat over its surface. If necessary, pull out the thermometer briefly, turn the roulades and prick again.
  • Meanwhile, heat the sunflower oil in a separate pan for the bean salad. First fry the bacon in it and then add the onions and sweat them until translucent. Immediately add everything - including the frying fat - to the beans while still hot, fold in the balsamic cream and savory and finally season with salt and pepper.
  • At the same time, heat the kritharaki in the pan while stirring, fold in the ajvar, ketchup and olives and season with salt and sugar.
  • When the roulades have reached their core temperature, they can be served immediately. Good Appetite............;-)
