Linguine with Tuna, Colatura and Lemon Zest

I don’t know in other countries, but in Italy when you say “pasta with canned tuna” many people think immediately to one of the typical and easiest recipes that students living away from home often do, or single men living alone, or people with few cooking skills, it’s kind of a stereotype 🙂 But in…

Insalata di Baccalà – Dried and Salted Cod Salad

I already talked about the Baccalà in THIS post, and I also wrote something about the history of this great product and how it became so popular in Italy, so if you are interested about that background you can have a look there 🙂 This is one of the many ways you can use it,…

Baked Gilt-Head Sea Bream, Very Easy

This is a recipe I like to do when I don’t want to think too much about how to cook a whole gilt-head sea bream (or a sea bass, a dentex or other similar fish) 🙂 The recipe is really easy and simple, so it’s perfect to cook a delicate fish: I don’t usually like too…

Breaded Pike Fillet on Spring Onion Cream

This is an easy and simple recipe I thought at the moment to prepare something different with some northern pike fillets I still had in my freezer 🙂 I really like pike, but my favorite recipes with it are usually made by boiling it. This time I tried to coat it in breadcrumbs and to…

“Bertagnì” – Dried and Salted Cod, Fried

This is a typical street food that you can still find mostly at the weekly markets in the villages/towns between the provinces of Bergamo and Brescia. Basically it’s not much different than the fish in many others “fish & chips” but since it’s typical of my area of origin I would like to show it, and…

Tonno e Piselli – Tuna and Peas

Today I’m showing a very easy and simple recipe, but which is very good 🙂 It’s not something you are going to find in restaurants, it’s just an easy food to prepare during a week day. My mom used to prepare this dish to me quite often for lunch when I came back from school…

Pike Fillet on Pumpkin Cream, with Chanterelles

This is a recipe that I thought in few minutes 🙂 I wanted to do something different this time (as I previously showed, mostly I use to boil the northern pike and season it then with some sauce, or I make fish balls with it), so I made fillets and I tried to make it…

Linguine with Pike

As I already wrote previously, the Northern Pike is a very good fish, but if usually most of the recipes prepare it as a second course/main course, I have to say that it’s possible to prepare some great pasta recipes too, as I’m going to show you now 🙂 And I have to say that…

Mediterranean Seabass Fillet with Olives and Pine Nuts

The Seabass is one of the most appreciated fish, and there are reasons why 😀 It’s very tasty, its flesh is firm and the fillet is boneless, it’s perfect for everyone 🙂 This is a very easy and fast recipe, so we can do it whenever we want! All we need are few ingredients: the…

Baked Zander/Walleye with Walnuts Crust

I use to cook the fillet of the Zander in the pan, but this is a recipe that sometimes I like to do and in this case the fillet is going to be baked. It’s more common to see recipes of fish with toasted almonds, but also walnuts sometimes can be an interesting choice. It’s…

Easy Autumn Grill :) Grilled Zander/Walleye

Yesterday evening the fisherman brought us an amazing 3 kg Zander from the Balaton lake…I already shared some recipes with this fish (HERE), but since the weather is still sunny I soon thought “that’s a perfect fish to grill tomorrow” 🙂 and I was definitely right 😛 one of the most simple ways to prepare food,…
