675g prepared polenta
450ml olive oil, for frying
56g grated Parmesan
225ml purchased marinara sauce
1) Lightly oil an 27.5 by 17.5-cm baking dish. Transfer the hot polenta to the prepared baking dish, spreading evenly to 1.8-cm thick. Refrigerate until cold and firm, about 2 hours.

2) Preheat the oven to 120°C.

3) Cut the polenta into 5 by 2.5-cm pieces. Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.

4) Working in batches, fry the polenta pieces until golden brown on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Using tongs, transfer the polenta pieces to paper towels and drain. Place the polenta pieces on a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while cooking the remaining batches.

5) Transfer the polenta pieces to a serving platter. Sprinkle the polenta with the Parmesan cheese and salt. Serve, passing the marinara sauce alongside.
