One of the liveliest preparations from Abkhazia on the Black Sea coast is abkhazura, highly seasoned meatballs served with tkemali sauce. Extra flavor is imparted to the meatballs by wrapping them in lacy caul fat, which also enhances their appearance. But since caul fat is often hard to find here, the meatballs may be shaped without it. This invigorating recipe comes from Marina Mirianashvili.
