Seada

Seada is a typical Sardinian dessert from the central and eastern areas of the island region.

Seada is prepared by deep-frying a large semolina dumpling, usually between 8 and 10 cm in diameter,and then adding a filling of soured Pecorino Sardo DOP cheese and lemon peel with olive oil or lard.

Seada was originally served as an entree, however over time it evolved into a dessert and it is now typically served covered with honey, sugar and, sometimes, salt. It goes well with white and aromatic sweet wines such as Malvasia di Bosa DOC, and Vermentino di Gallura DOCG wines.
