This Salmoriglio tuna steak recipe hides the story of a fantastic day on the Island of Favignana, in Sicily. Last June my wife Caterina and I spent a few days on the Aegadian Islands. One day we have been so lucky to have a day on the boat of the famous Italian fisherman Gioacchino Cataldo. Gioacchino has been a pleasant guide bringing us to explore the Island and cooking for us this delicious tuna steak recipe. On the contrary of the classic Salmoriglio marinate, the seasoning is made directly in the pan. The tuna is quickly seared on both sides, then seasoned with lemon juice and oregano: a simple, quick, and tasty recipe!
Chicken cacciatore, is one of the most popular Italian recipes. Named “pollo alla cacciatora”, this recipe is prepared with some little differences in almost all the regions of Italy. I like sear the chicken reduced into pieces before slowly cook it into a fresh tomatoes sauce. Garlic, rosemary and give at the meat a delicious flavor. Even if it’s possible braise the meat with white wine, I suggest baste with red wine in order to make the taste of the sauce bold!
This BBQ pork fajitas recipe is great for a feast with friends! I love this easy dish, it does at your barbeque a South American touch. Just marinate the meat a few hours in advance with lime juice, Mexican amber beer, herbs and spices. When the time comes, bring with you marinated pork in a cooler and grill it along with mixed bell peppers!
Pan fried zucchini is an easy recipe, great aside eggs or meats. I love sear zucchini before cooking them slowly along with garlic and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. A sprinkle of black pepper and minced Italian parsley complete this tasty recipe. Delicious just cooked, but great reheated as well!
