Seada (more commonly known by its plural form, Seadas) is a Sardinian savoury dessert which can be served with sweet toppings. It is prepared by deep-frying a large semolina dumpling (usually between 8 and 10 cm in diameter) with a filling of soured Pecorino cheese and lemon peel in olive oil or lard, and is served covered with honey, sugar and, sometimes, salt.
