 ¼ tsp Salt
  tsp Black pepper
  tbsp Sunflower oil
 ½ cup Water
 Sunflower oil

In a pan, heat some sunflower oil on high heat and add half the marrow. Keep stirring until they turn slightly brown on all sides. Remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Fry the rest of the marrow in the same oil and repeat.
