Simple Mediterranean Seafood

Simple Mediterranean Seafood

If you can squeeze a lemon, you can cook with wild-caught seafood. Read on for some of our favorite recipes featuring a fresh catch. 

As a peninsula that juts out into the Mediterranean Sea, it is not surprising that Italy has a way with seafood. From the seafaring merchant empire of Venice down to the island of Sicily, the country’s culinary repertoire includes a range of fish dishes that are like a love letter to the sea.

Here are some of our favorites.

salmon with Salmoriglio Sauce

PESCE AL SALMORIGLIO 

Called sammurigghiu in dialect, the style of sauce comes from Sicilia, where centuries of both salt harvesting and fishing made locals experts at preparing their daily fresh catch. "Salmoriglio" itself means "little brine," which is essentially how you season your fish with the sauce before grilling.

PESCE IN UMIDO

For this stewed fish dish, tender halibut is topped with briny Taggiasca olives and delicately bitter fennel. It originally comes from acclaimed chef and restaurateur, Barbara Lynch.

BORDETTO DI BRANZINO

Located along the Adriatic coast, Abruzzo is an Italian region known for its brodetto, a stew traditionally made by fishermen from the catch of the day that did not sell at the market paired with seasonal vegetables.

 BUCATINI CON LE SARDE

Pasta with sardines is a traditional dish in Sicilia. Bucatini, a long and hollow pasta, perfectly picks up the simple sauce, which is perfectly balanced with sardines, wild fennel, and other herbs.
