* To make fried sage leaves, warm a couple tablespoons olive oil in a small saucepan. Once hot, drop in 8 to 10 sage leaves. They should sizzle right away. Cook for 3 seconds, then transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with a little salt. Repeat with remaining sage leaves. You’ll need 5 to 6 leaves per serving, and perhaps make a few extra to serve on the side!
