Chef Antonio Mermolia came up with his shrimp salad with onion gelato on a hot day in July when he was trying to create a refreshing yet out-of-the-ordinary dish.
Spotting a red onion, he began to experiment, ultimately creating onion gelato.
To make the gelato Mermolia simmers red onions in water and sugar. Once the water has evaporated, he stirs in some cream and milk. Once that mixture cools he adds some egg yolk and spins it all together into gelato.
