Octopus carpaccio with asparagus

Octopus carpaccio with asparagus

Octopus is a very common mollusc found in all seas, as well as in the Mediterranean too. Rich in proteins and low in cholesterol and fats, it can be prepared in many ways. Carpaccio is a method of 'cooking' fish or meat without having to use a heat source, by just marinating it in salt or lemon. Since the process of making it at home is quite time consuming, a very handy option is to use pre-marinated octopus, like the one Medusa makes.

Salted codfish balls

Salted codfish balls

'Baccalà' is the Italian name for dried and salted codfish, an essential ingredient in many culinary traditions. Worldwide, Portugal ranks number one in its consumption, but Italy follows closely after with its many traditional recipes: 'baccalà alla lucana', 'alla cosentina', 'alla siciliana', etc.. Because of the preservation process, this fish needs many hours of soaking to get rid of the salt and to rehydrate the flesh. Here we suggest a simple, delicious recipe, something children will love and an ideal buffet component too!

Tuna with Salsa Verde

Sicilian Style Tuna with Salsa Verde

In this recipe, the sea and the mountains meet to bring forth new tastes: in fact, our suggested tuna steak dish is dressed with a tipical 'mountain sauce', salsa verde. Its origins are to be found in the north of Italy, and in particular in Piedmont, where it is called 'bagnet vert'. Traditionally served with boiled meat, this sauce has become popular and it now compliments many other dishes such as appetizers, vegetables or, like in this recipe, fish.
